AG OPINION & CRIMINAL IMMUNITY CLAUSE      MISSING IN ACTON        
  Los Angeles, CA The Full Disclosure Network has been investigating California Senate Bill SBX2 11 that was enacted into law on February 20, 2009 and became part of Government Code Sections 68220 on May 21, 2009. This controversial bill, signed into law by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, was intended to legalize "Double Benefits" for Judges and was inserted into part of the budget package this February and was intended to legalize the "double payments" being made to California Judges by the county governments.   NO DEBATE BUT LOTS OF SECRECY There was no debate or public scrutiny of the bill prior to the vote. These county payments to Judges were ruled illegal in an appellate court decision in a case brought by the Judicial Watch organization in Sturgeon v. County of Los Angeles that held the Judges are State employees  who were not entitled to  "double benefits" from the county due to a Constitutional Provision that Judges salaries and benefits are to be set by the legislature and cannot be delegated. WHY MISSING PARAGRAPHS ON CRIMINAL IMMUNITY?  Most notably three important paragraphs in SBX2 11 were missing from Government Code Sections 68220, 68221,68222. These paragraphs  included the most critical and controversial part of the bill, that being that California Judges and county government officials were given retroactive immunity from criminal prosecution and civil liability for crimes committed prior to May 21, 2009. What the bill doesn't say is what happens to the crimes committed after May 21st 2009? Is criminal behavior for government officials now legal? IS CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR NOW LEGAL FOR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS?  "This bill would provide that no governmental entity, or officer or employee of a governmental entity, shall incur any liability or be subject to prosecution or disciplinary action because of benefits provided to a judge under the official action of a governmental entity prior to the effective date of the bill on the ground that those benefits were not authorized under law.
