Protest planned in SF against state’s ‘broken’ judicial system 

Critics of the state's courts plan to march to the California Judicial Council on Friday to protests lax oversight of a system they say is broken.

Organizers argue that many Californians are being "denied lawyers, court reporters, and effective relief from biased judges and corrupt branch officials," and little is being done to change the status quo.

Representatives from the Center for Judicial Excellence and California Protective Parents Association, who organized the event jointly, are expected to be joined by lawyers and advocates at the event to speak out against their claims of judicial wrongdoing. This is planned for outside the State Building across from Civic Center Plaza.

The rally starts at noon and will last until 3 p.m. The event will include a "Wall of Shame" listing the alleged wrongdoings.

The Judicial Council's headquarters is 350 McAllister St.

More information on the rally can be found at centerforjudicialexcellence.org.

The state's judicial council, headed by Chief Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye, implements policy for all the state's courts, from superior courts up to the Supreme Court.
