Justice Delayed is Justice Denied Cody & Bodhi
"Justice delayed is justice denied" is a legal maxim meaning that if legal redress is available for a party that has suffered some injury, but is not forthcoming in a timely fashion, it is effectively the same as having no redress at all. This principle is the basis for the right to a speedy trial and similar rights which are meant to expedite the legal system, because it is unfair for the injured party to have to sustain the injury with little hope for resolution." Wikipedia Dear Supervisors of San Bernardino County: We are requesting that the office of the public defender be declared vacated at your next meeting, because of the serious and irreconcilable breach of the public trust.
The Public Defender has:
1. Sworn to defend the Constitution of the United States of America never the less has denied the defendent the right to a speedy trial.
2. The Public Defender has publicly stated in a Court of law that this office lacks the economic resources for the trial of this case
3. The Public Defender on April 23, 2012 has obstructed justice by forcing the judge to make a Salomonic decision under the sword of Damocles essentially "hog tying" this sitting judge to choose between the lesser of two delay scenarios that would push the trail back one or two years.
4. The Public Defender in office currently has committed egregious violations of the ethics cannons that regulate this profession [rule 3-200, 3-700(c), rule 5-200(b) and rule 5-220] and should be removed from office.
