Julie Kay interviews Chief Judge Moreno
Lots of good stuff in the article that will make lawyers and non-lawyers happy, like being more permissive with cell phones and laptops. The Chief also plans on making sure that secret dockets are a thing of the past and that all documents are made available to the public:
“I’m a very open person,” Moreno said. “My personal feeling is that if something is said in open court, it should be an open record.”
As for plea deals: "Moreno said the court will continue to study another issue that recently has generated controversy — whether plea agreements should be posted online."
Interesting article and worth a read.
