California Judge Blasts Failure to Upend State Judicial System's Central Bureaucracy

He wants the Judicial Council, which oversees the system's bureaucracy, to be elected by trial judges and not appointed by the chief justice


Speaking for hundreds of reformist judges in California, Sacramento Judge Steve White blasted the Judicial Council over its failure to "unhorse" the powerful bureaucrats of the judiciary's central administrative office.

"Hundreds of judges are still skeptical that the council will ever see the need and find the will to unhorse the Administrative Office of the Courts," White said.
