Holiday Wish List

Some wishes for the upcoming year:

1. A good competent replacement is found for Nick Chiarkis as head of the state public defender.

2. The private bar rate is raised...very unlikely in light of today's economic realities

3. More jury trials occur in federal court....hopefully the jury system will be revitalized

4. Strip searches of defense counsel entering the federal building finally end

5. Judge Crabb can finally retire as a second judge is confirmed for the Western District

Feliz Navidad
