State court cuts called on in HuffPo

A major national story by Joanne Doroshow on the Huffington Post Politics blog is a bit sarcastic toward Gov. Brown and laments the “Slow Death of Justice in California.”  The writer, who has a day job with the Center for Justice and Democracy at New York Law School, virtually scoffs at the governor’s priorities, writing that Brown is “… so excited… about the state’s budget situation that in his State of the State address, he spoke starry-eyed about ideas that suddenly seemed possible, like a new high-speed rail.”
The story is an important counter-narrative to the Brown administration’s attitude that the state has somehow managed to create a surplus and can now begin spending on certain projects while looking the other way on court shortfalls. Read it here.
