Civil contempt confinement policies should be reformed

Civil contempt confinement policies should be reformed By Jayne Ressler 29 Jul 2010 Richard Fine, a 70-year-old Tarzana attorney, has been imprisoned, reportedly in solitary confinement, without trial since March 4, 2009. His "crime"? Contempt of court, based on alleged "moral turpitude." He faces imprisonment indefinitely, unless he complies with the order of Judge David Yaffe, the Los Angeles County Superior Court judge responsible for his confinement. Why the harsh treatment of Fine? Could it be in response to Fine's investigation of court cases that involved prosecution against Los Angeles County that were inexplicably dismissed? Over a period of time, Fine alleged that Los Angeles County was bribing judges, under the guise of generous "supplemental benefits" payments, in exchange for rulings in the county's favor.
