Skip to comments.Judge: Federal Judiciary Is on the ‘Cusp of a Financial Crisis’
Posted on 03/14/2012 8:41:57 AM PDT by AtlasStalled
The courts could lose more than one-fourth of their workforce, civil trials could be suspended for months, funds to pay panel attorneys who represent indigent defendants would expire well before the end of the fiscal year, and court security could be severely compromised, said Judge Julia Gibbons, in remarks to the federal judiciarys policy-making body.

Suck it up Cupcake, and double your workday to six hours.
They strike me as a cross between corrupt politicians, corrupt bureaucrats, corrupt LEOs, and lazy, entitled welfare recipients. My Rat’sAss Meter is just not detecting much of anything to offer them.
“Where is the accountability?”
It’s NOT by way of electing them.
Judges who run for election normally run unopposed. No one who reads a voter’s guide can determine where the judge is coming from, what views they have, whether they are conservative or liberal.
And a judge that runs unopposed can get elected by a handful of staff and friends.
You can’t vote against someone that runs unopposed.
What is needed is to elect a panel of judicial reviewers. Elect people who identify their party, who make their views known and who know the law some. Then task those people with reviewing judges for how well they follow the law, how fair they are, whether or not they appear to have even read the case material before them, etc.
Today, it was revealed that Obamacare not only dictates coverage for contraception that every single insured individual pay $1 of premium to cover abortions.
No problem, we’ll replace them with a bunch of 5th graders with copies of the constitution. Things are lookin up!
I have a different read on what most of the commenters do in this post. I’m thinking this is but one step in OBAMA!!’s master plan to implement martial law.
Good point, Aunt B. I haven’t seen you around here, lately.
If you read the article in the WSJ, one of the solutions that the judiciary is pushing for is to end electronic monitoring of pre-trial prisoners who are living in a half-way house.
We have these half-way houses in WA, as part of a Democrat effort to reduce incarceration rates, but this is the first time that I have heard about using them in pre-trial cases. I presume that they are drug cases.
Here is an idea. Loser pays. Make those filing and losing lawsuits PAY the court costs, all the court costs.
Societies have been dealing with their bad boys and bad girls for thousands of years. Here in America too many cases are handled by Federal courts now, and the costs of handling the cases is astronomical.
If the courts lose some of their workforce and they complain about becoming clogged up, my response will be that they should spend less time and money on each case.
The federal judiciary can be cut in half—get rid of the “activists” (aka tyrants in black-robes) and let us, the citizens, have representative government restored. The judiciary bears at least 50% of the blame for the mess we have in this country—they are destroying our traditional values, our families, our economy, our borders, and law enforcement. If anything, the corruption in the judiciary, the hateful anti-constitutionalist pigs on the bench, need to be excised from the system. We need reform and this is a good start.
I will commit suicide before I will pay that $1 mandatory monthly Obamacare fee for abortions at Planned Parenthood. It is essentially the Mark of the Beast.
STARVE THE BEAST.....
