Judges Judging Judges:
This awkward court fight has judges pitted against judges. The Los Angeles Superior Court hired Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher one of the nation’s most prestigious law firms to fight to overturn the previous decision in November 2008 that found the double benefits of $300 million paid to L A Judges since 1987 were illegal. And, L A County would not take no for an answer, they hired Jones-Day one of the largest law firms in the world to continue the fight to give double benefits to the highest-paid judges in the nation. Apparently, the costly court fees for retrying the case is not an issue. There appears to be unlimited funds for the top legal beagles.
