People v. Gayton (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb. 28, 2006)


Rarely have I read an opinion by the Court of Appeal that is so intelligent, passionate, and so concerned with justice as this one, by Justice Bedsworth.

You've really got to read this one. It's quite good. And fairly short.

As an aside, I've been pretty impressed with Justice Bedsworth over time. He writes pretty well, and with a passion. Interesting that Justice Bedsworth actually had to run for an open seat to get on the Superior Court; not what I'd expect from someone with his background. Plus, he's a goal line judge for every Mighty Ducks game. Why doesn't someone give ME that kind of job?! I'm outraged. And totally jealous.
