Commission On Judicial Performance Files Suit Claiming They Are Above the Law- Is CJP Immune from Sunshine Laws and The First Amendment?
NEWSFLASH: Desperate CJP Files Lawsuit to Duck State Audit !
Ironically, a Court will get to decide if the Commission on Judicial Performance is immune from California's Sunshine Laws and First Amendment rights as the CJP fights access of the State Auditor who seeks to reveal if the CJP has been protecting California's from bad judges.

For decades people trapped in divorces have complained about unfair judges who cost them custody, property or support, based on sheer bias and abuse of discretion imposed by a single family court judge. . Many have suffered at the hand of bad judges abusing their power.
While thousands of people have complained to state watchdog agencies, such as the Commission on Judicial Performance, and the State Bar, for family law litigants, nobody was answering the phone.
In addition to the assured immunity (that all judges have), family law judges appear to have enjoyed additional protection by being completely "off radar" from the taxpayer funded watchdog agencies that ostensibly assure citizens receive fair and equitable divorces.
At the State Bar only one of the trial counsel lawyers comes with a family law background and at the Commission on Judicial Performance, the numbers are more dismal; Jane and John Q research could not find one member of the Commission with significant family law experience. It is a virtual certainty that most of the complaints to CJP arise from individuals involved in divorce cases,
It is perhaps that fact that prompted the State Legislator to order the State Auditor to audit the CJP, just as she had the State Bar in 2015.
Divorce litigants up and down the state celebrated the victory of the audit after the extraordinary efforts from groups like the Center for Judicial Excellence and Court Reform LLC. in getting done what no politician or activist had done before .
And while Victoria Henley, head hench woman at the CJP said she welcomed the audit, she clearly had something else in mind after her public conciliatory statement.
On October 20, 2016 , CJP showed the world they still don't want to play fair and want to play by their rules, not state of federal law. The Commission filed a lawsuit that seeks to significantly restrain and limit the audit, and would render it virtually useless.
Not so fast say judicial reform supporters . Social media and the modern hacktivists channels are now kicked into high gear and the little guys, the pro pers , plan a nuclear like response..
