Limit the number of times you can appeal to 3-4. If looking to overturn a conviction, re-try by jury. if found guilty by 2 seprate juries, you lose all rights to appeal further. This should include Death penalty cases, and hopefully put more focus on Innocent Until Proven Guilty.
The Judicial System is broken and does not serve American society. There is no sense in spending money on something that doesn't accomplish anything. If a deterrent is necessary to reduce crime, have a lottery for jail time instead of a trail. Sure, innocent people are punished and the criminals run free - same as now at less cost.
As I process the travel reimbursement for REPRESENTATIVES here in my office, I am apalled at how much money our agency could save if we imposed a rule of travel for out-of-state attorneys. Air travel is too expensive, too risky (missed hearings). The attorney out-of-state should be fully liable for the monies to travel to the hearing since we can provide electronic hearings at this point.
When I walk by the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building at One Columbus Circle NE on the weekends, the lights are on in the building. Yet, it looks like there's nobody working inside. Why don't they turn off the lights (or most of the lights) during non-work hours?
SSA caps the fees for at attorneys at the lesser of $6000 or 25% of backdue money. If a similar cap could be found for class action damages, "clients" could get settlements for more that $10.
