Oak Ridge, TN 37830 RE: Truancies, Unrulies and Juvenile Status Offenses Dear Dr. McCoy, Congratulations on your new position in your hometown in Mississippi. It is fortunate that you will not depart Oak Ridge Schools until the end of this school year, because you can still be of great service to our youth (Oak Ridge is my hometown). As your legacy, you have an opportunity to help the juvenile court system solve its prosecutorial resource problem: See the enclosed statutes providing the juvenile court a remedy when the state exercises its TCA 8-7-103 (6) discretion in allocating its resources. The Court can appoint the School Board Attorney, the County Attorney, the City Attorney, or any other attorney to prosecute a case, pursuant to TCA 37-1-124 (b), when the State decides for scarcity of resource reasons not to participate. As District Attorneys General, we have the responsibility, the discretion and the statutory authority to take control of those serious cases that deserve our attention, such as those which would be felonies if the juvenile were an adult, and serious misdemeanors such as assault and theft. See our policy, enclosed in the form of a

Ashcroft's Folly

How the attorney general lost the Moussaoui trial before it began.
By Dahlia Lithwick
Posted Thursday, July 24, 2003, at 1:36 PM PT
From the get-go, the trial of so-called "20 th hijacker" Zacarias Moussaoui has been hamstrung by a Justice Department that seemingly wanted one prosecution to serve half a dozen irreconcilable ends. With a single deft trial, Attorney General John Ashcroft had hoped to avenge the evil of Sept. 11 for all Americans, while showcasing the even-handedness of the American justice system for the rest of the world. He wanted to soothe us with proven legal truths: He did it, and he paid for it with his life. And Ashcroft thought he could demonstrate to terrorists everywhere that transparency and due process would triumph over theocracy and prejudice. But as this prosecution unravels, indecision on the part of the Justice Department reveals nothing less than the government's own lack of faith in the courts. Moussaoui—intent on defending himself—undid the government by using transparency and due process to embarrass the prosecution and allegedly compromise national security. The man refused to go quietly, insisting on challenging the evidence against him and exercising his full range of rights as a criminal defendant. The prosecution—applying a broad new theory of conspiracy law—didn't help matters by filing an indictment shot through with circumstantial evidence and unsupported speculation. And so Moussaoui, considered nuttier than a Snickers bar when this trial began almost a year ago, suddenly looks like a Jeremiah. His ongoing contention—that the proceedings are nothing more than a "death show trial" jiggered to result in his execution—suddenly looks to be true.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Mike Fisher Maintains System of Secret Censorship that Avoids All Public and Judicial Oversight, and Violates Established Supreme Court Precedent
On May 22, 2003, Pennsylvania Attorney General Mike Fisher rejected a Right to Know law appeal seeking the disclosure of Internet web sites that the Attorney General has blocked without any public or judicial oversight. Because of the censorship scheme created by Pennsylvania's Internet Web Blocking Law, Pa. Stat. Title 18, § 7330, and the Attorney General's secret and unreviewed blocking orders, Internet users both in Pennsylvania and across the United States are unable to access wholly innocent and lawful Internet web sites. The Attorney General's secret orders to block Internet content are violate the First Amendment under the United States Supreme Court's decision in Bantam Books v. Sullivan, 372 U.S. 58 (1963). In that case, a Rhode Island state commission advised distributors that certain books and materials were deemed objectionable by the commission without judicial review.

Office Of The Attorney General
The Office of Attorney General is established in terms of the Constitution, whereby the Attorney General is appointed by the President acting on the advice of the Prime Minister. The appointed person is eligible to hold office as Attorney General if he is qualified for appointment as a judge of the Superior Courts.
In the exercise of his powers to institute, undertake or discontinue criminal proceedings as conferred to him by any law which authorises him to exercise that power in his individual judgment, the Attorney General shall not be subject to the direction or control of any other person or authority.
The Attorney General vacates his office when he attains the age of sixty years, and like a judge of the Superior Courts, he may not be removed from his office except by the President upon a resolution by the House of Representatives. This motion must obtain not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the members of Parliament. Normally a request for such removal is based on the ground of proved inability to perform the functions of his office (whether arising from infirmity of body or mind or any other cause) or proved misbehaviour.
The law officers serving in his Chambers appear for Government in the Superior Courts in its civil and criminal jurisdiction, as a Court of Appeal or Constitutional Court, and before the Court of Magistrates in Malta and Gozo. These law officers advise Government on all legal matters and draft documents or agreements and instruct government officials on matters, that entail the interpretation of legal issues or principles.

For Immediate Release
April 8, 2002 MERRILL LYNCH STOCK RATING SYSTEM FOUND BIASED BY UNDISCLOSED CONFLICTS OF INTEREST Spitzer Obtains Court Order Requiring Key Disclosure State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer today announced a court order requiring immediate reforms in investment counseling by one of the nation's oldest and largest securities firms. "This was a shocking betrayal of trust by one of Wall Street’s most trusted names," Spitzer said. "The case must be a catalyst for reform throughout the entire industry." As part of a quid pro quo between the firm and its investment banking clients, Merrill Lynch analysts skewed stock ratings, giving favorable coverage to preferred clients, even when those stocks were dubious investments.
These communications show analysts privately disparaging companies while publicly recommending their stocks. For example, one analyst made highly disparaging remarks about the management of an internet company and called the company's stock "a piece of junk," yet gave the company, which was a major investment banking client, the firm's highest stock rating.

Opn. No. 99-13
The City of Troy should seek an amendment to section 2.10 of the Criminal Procedure Law to designate uniformed court officers of the Troy City Court as peace officers. May 5, 1999 Patrick T. Morphy, Esq. Informal Opinion Corporation Counsel No. 99-13 City of Troy City Hall Troy, NY 12180 Dear Mr. Morphy:
You have stated that the City of Troy has a contract with the Office of Court Administration (OCA) to provide security in the Troy City Court. The City would like to replace the police officers now providing security with uniformed court officers. OCA, however, has informed officials of the City that in order for it to accept the City's plan, the uniformed court officers must have peace officer status. Your question is whether section 2.10 of the Criminal Procedure Law must be amended specifically to designate uniformed court officers of the City of Troy as peace officers.
In 1980, the Criminal Procedure Law was amended in relation to the designation and powers of peace officers. L 1980, ch 843. Chapter 843 was the culmination of many years of study, particularly the Law Revision Commission's 1976 report to the Legislature. See , Recommendation of the Law Revision Commission to the 1976 Legislature, McKinney's 1976 Session Laws, pp 2250-2282, 1976 Legislative Document No. 65(1). A primary purpose of Chapter 843 was to consolidate all peace officer designations into section 2.10 of the Criminal Procedure Law. Thus, a class of enforcement officers will not have peace officer status unless they are included within section 2.10 of the Criminal Procedure Law.

It is the court's wish that you know your rights and duties. We want every person who comes here to receive fair treatment in accord with the ideals of American justice. By law, the court must apply rules of procedure and evidence to each case it hears. These procedures are applied uniformly, without regard to personal considerations. The judge is sworn to enforce without favor the laws of the State and community, which are made by the people for the protection of all. The General District Court does not conduct jury trials. All cases in this court are heard by a judge. Jury trials are held only in Circuit Court, as provided by the State Constitution. The Code of Virginia defines criminal offenses and sets penalties. For many offenses the penalty prescribed is a fine. Fines collected for violations of city, town, or county ordinances are paid into the treasury of the city, town, or county whose ordinance has been violated. All fines collected for violation of State law are paid into the State Treasury. The amount of court costs is set by the State legislature, and the court cannot suspend or waive costs. Judges, clerks, and magistrates are salaried with public funds and they collect no individual fees. The court is not operated to produce revenue.

An Open Letter To The Attorney General About Immigration Law Enforcement
By Juan Mann Dear Attorney General Ashcroft: The time is fast approaching when you will surrender the Immigration and Naturalization Service – the pride of the Justice Department – to the new Department of Homeland Security. But take heart. You still control the one agency within the Department of Justice that is the power behind the scenes in immigration law enforcement - and also the greatest obstacle to real immigration reform in the federal government: the Executive Office for Immigration Review ( EOIR. ). The EOIR is the legal bureaucracy that regulates, and in effect cripples, the deportation of illegal aliens. The truth about the EOIR comes out one alien at a time - in cases like sniper John Lee Malvo,

Attorney General Axes BIA members in February 2002 Rejecting EOIR "independence" farce
By Juan Mann One plan is the right direction . The other is the wrong direction . It's as simple as that. The self-serving plan by the bureaucrats of the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) to elevate themselves to greater so-called “independence” in hearing the country’s immigration cases is simply wrong. The plan by the Bush administration to scale back and streamline the laughable delay of the EOIR’s appellate body, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), is a step in the right direction. Someone in the Bush administration apparently knows the truth about the EOIR that it's part of the problem, not part of the solution for better immigration law enforcement. The recent “report” by a federal employee union, the National Association of Immigration Judges, calling for the EOIR to be taken out of the review of the Department of Justice does nothing but serve the interests of the EOIR’s own bureaucratic empire. This power grab would do nothing to streamline the process of deporting illegal aliens and criminal alien residents from the United States. It would only add to the needless delay of the already broken Immigration Court system and its perpetual appellate review. An excellent article by Los Angeles attorney Carl Pearlston

Born and raised in Columbia, S.C., Henry McMaster is a 1969 graduate of the University of South Carolina and received his law degree from USC in 1973. McMaster served in the United States Army Reserves from 1969-1975, and served as a legislative assistant to U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond from 1973-1974. Prior to being elected Attorney General, Henry practiced law with his father and brothers in the Columbia firm of Tompkins and McMaster, which was established over a century ago in 1898. Upon the recommendation of Senator Thurmond, Henry was nominated by President Ronald Reagan as United States Attorney for the District of South Carolina in 1981 and was the first U.S. Attorney in the nation to be appointed by President Reagan. While United States Attorney, Henry instituted several innovative and extremely successful investigations. Under his direction "OPERATION JACKPOT" was the first investigation into international drug smuggling operations within the United States to use the financial team approach. Over 100 drug kingpins were convicted of selling $18 billion worth of drugs, and over one million dollars of the assets seized were channeled to SLED and the Crimestoppers organizations in South Carolina. McMaster also launched investigations and prosecutions into fraud and public corruption, most notably the 1981 Dillon County vote buying scandal, which resulted in the conviction of politicians and elected officials.

Attorney General Bill Pryor files a motion for the Alabama Supreme Court to re-hear a controversial state-church separation case. Should prayer and display of religious symbols be permitted in courtrooms and other government venues? Web Posted: February 14, 1998 axpayers in Alabama will continue to pick up the tab for legal fees in a controversial case involving a county judge who posts a copy of the Ten Commandments on his courtroom wall, and opens judicial proceedings with a prayer. Last January, the state's Supreme Court dismissed Alabama's case which was seen by legal observers as an effort to obtain a favorable court ruling supporting Etowah County Judge Roy Moore. The original suit had been filed by the state; but justices backed-off dealing with the constitutional issues. That action meant that while Moore may continue the prayer and decalogue display, any legal challenges against him must, essentially, start over or be filed in a different jurisdiction. Attorney General Bill Pryor filed a new motion last week which seeks a rehearing on the state's case. Justices may be reluctant to do so, however; in the official decision, Justice Ralph Cook who authored the ruling, cautioned that the court "will not, however, allow the judiciary of this state to become a political foil, or a sounding board for topics of contemporary interest."

(SACRAMENTO) – Attorney General Bill Lockyer today called for major reforms of the legal and regulatory framework that governs California's wholesale electricity market, releasing a report that concludes the oversight and enforcement system failed during the Energy Crisis of 2000-01, worsened the crisis' effects and has undermined ratepayers' ability to obtain redress for price gouging.
"Laws, rules and regulators are supposed to protect consumers and deter misconduct," said Lockyer. "But in the case of the California Energy Crisis, the system has sheltered wrongdoers and left ratepayers out in the cold. The enforcement defects continue to provide sellers incentives to game and gouge. Substantial reforms are needed to remove these incentives and ensure the sad history suffered by Californians is never repeated."
Lockyer submitted the 90-page report to Congress, the state Legislature, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and state and federal regulators. The report offers a wide-ranging set of 33 recommendations for how Congress, the courts, regulators and state policymakers can improve market oversight, strengthen enforcement, prevent misconduct and enhance remedies for violations. The report is available on the Attorney General's web site, at

By Bill Pryor Information Services
August 21, 2003
(Editor's Note: The following is a statement from Attorney General
Bill Pryor regarding the order of the Alabama Supreme Court to
require the judicial building manager to comply with the federal injunction.) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE For More Information, Contact:
Joy Patterson (334) 242-7491 Suzanne Webb (334) 242-7351 August 21, 2003 "Today the eight associate justices of the Supreme Court of Alabama unanimously entered an order to remove the Chief Justice's monument from the public area of the State Judicial Building. Specifically, the Supreme Court today ordered the Judicial Building Manager to comply with the federal injunction as soon as practicable. In the meantime, access to the State Judicial Building has been limited to persons with official court business. I have filed a certified copy of the order with the Clerk of the U. S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama. I am hopeful that these actions will remove any risk that State officials will be ordered to pay fines for contempt of court from taxpayer funds. In my judgment, the taxpayers of Alabama should not be penalized for the refusal of the Chief Justice to obey the orders of the federal courts. This moment in our history is already one of financial crisis for our State government and especially our court system.
