WASHINGTON, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Paul Orfanedes, Litigation Director for Judicial Watch, explains how Judicial Watch uses the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to discover "dirty deeds" documented in public records. Watch the 1-minute preview video here in the second of three segments of a Full Disclosure Network(R) TV-Internet Series. Orfanedes cites the Sturgeon II vs. L.A. County case regarding judges receiving double benefits above and beyond their salaries from Los Angeles County Supervisors. He notes that the California Constitution requires the legislature to set compensation, and that the court hired lobbyists for legislative changes, resulting in SBX 211. This legislative change circumvented the Sturgeon case, allowing double benefit payments to continue, and providing retroactive immunity to the L.A. County officials authorizing the payments and the judges who received them. Watch the video and full segment here: http://www.fulldisclosure.net/2014/02/judicial-watch-reveals-court-deeds-615-2/
