No one commented on the ongoing appeals in Hollywood's case. His direct appeals are final. He filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus seeking to overturn his conviction. The Santa Barbara Superior Court recently denied that petition in a lengthy opinion. (It was not decided by the same judge who tried the case.) Next will likely be a habeas petition before the Cal. Court of Appeal. Available avenues after that would be a petition to the Cal. Supreme Court, then the federal courts.

bimboteskie: Judge Sterne is not responsible for the delays in the gang injunction case. The plaintiffs spent over a year trying to get juvenile records information released from the Juvenile Court. That is a different judge. They got some of the records they requested released. The gang injunction case is set for trial on March 17 (happy St. Paddy's day). That date was selected by the parties. Sterne did not delay it.

Bimboteskie: The disclosure of juvenile records issue was not before Judge Sterne. It was before Judge Adams. Now that some of the records have been ordered disclosed, the DA and City can attempt to use those records in the gang injunction case, which is before Judge Sterne.

License suspension is an administrative matter handled by the DMV separate from and usually prior to the conviction for DUI. The DMV conducts its own hearing to determine if there was probable cause to stop the driver and if she/he was over the limit.

It's not just Europe. Boulder, Colorado made Pearl Street a walking mall with auto access to businesses on adjacent streets. The widened walkways made the street more accessible to the disabled who use wheel chairs, walkers or other devices. It's hard enough for the temporarily able-bodied to walk down State Street's narrow, cafe-hindered sidewalks. I can't imagine doing it with crutches or a walker or in a wheelchair. Having said that, a key factor is the impact on already struggling businesses on State Street. I know many business owners opposed this in the past, contending auto traffic helped their businesses. I'm now sure how auto traffic with no parking helps, but that's something that could be studied using real world (and yes, American) experiences with thoroughfares closed to the precious automobile.

"When asked how any male could 'impersonate' the husband or partner of an otherwise alert woman to initiate sexual relations, Dudley responded, 'That is such a guy question,' adding, 'You’re not that special.'”
What a dismissive, arrogant response. This was a teachable moment -- an opportunity to explain a serious offense to someone who doesn't understand. Would that our community leaders would educate rather than ridicule their questioners.
