Re: “Alleging Public Defender is Already Failing Clients, Attorney Asks to Fast Track Lawsuit

So you hired Lionel Hutz as the county PD? You people (voters) need to get off your asses and start electing some competent people. This idiot got hired because you elect idiots.

Re: “Puppy Plucked From Humboldt Bay to be Adopted by Rescuer

Thank you to all who helped save this little one. I began to cry when reading this. I just don't understand idiots like this who can be so cruel to a animal. But so thankful that she's going to be loved from this all. Thank you to the fisherman who helped and who is going to give her a home. Thank you

Re: “Griego Files Suit Challenging Public Defender Hire

Good on Patrik Griego for this lawsuit. Griego was excellent when he worked in the Humboldt County Public Defender's office. He worked for the people ("defendants") in a good and authentic way. I trust what I know of his claims here regarding the inappropriate hire of Marcus by the County. And I don't trust the County who would like poor people to be denied their right to competent counsel.
I would like to see the Petition for Writ of Mandate. Could the Journal please publish it?

Re: “Fatal Hit and Run in Downtown Eureka

Gary Lee Stotter's death on 4th near the Cop several years ago was similar. Someone driving about fifty, changing lanes so that they could pass cars stopped at the crosswalk.

Re: “The Political Climate With Jill Stein at HSU

I am hoping the presentations leading up to Dr. Stein's were recorded. I see the Soundcloud logo, but when I click on it, nothing happens. Did the Journal record the pre-lecture including Jene McCovey, Fernando Paz, and Sarah Torres?

Great evening. It is unfortunate that HSU (the institution) tried to sabotage the event by keeping it in the KB Room rather than offering the Van Duzer even when it was selling out and so many people wanted to attend. Requiring people to pick up tickets in advance ("sold out" by Friday) was prohibitive, too. Both of these moves by HSU stopped many more people from attending.

Re: “Supes Support Marcus, Face Lawsuit by Week's End

so it was supposedly of their own volition that humboldt's supervisors chose a public defender who received a scathing reprimand for assisting the prosecution? who, exactly, praised him for the position despite qualified local candidates? is it true maggie fleming, the DA herself, is from contra costa county, where marcus claims he retained practice? did she speak up for marcus? how could the supervisors have chosen such a person without collusion? this is criminal, and an obvious effort to save the county money against rightful prosecution from the public, over negligence, malpractice, improper due process, corruption etc. theres simply no other way to explain their decision, and their silence is speaking for them. the fact that the supervisors met...again in private, no discuss potential litigation rather than the moral basis of their decision is telling as well.

Re: “Supes Support Marcus, Face Lawsuit by Week's End

The press release states that Marcus was A public defender in San Bernardino County, not THE public defender (or at least your reproduction of the press does). That is true, even if he was a deputy. It doesn't "incorrectly refer" to him as the public defender, your article incorrectly summarizes the press release.

More importantly, it isn't clear from the press release whether the panel's recommended candidate was from the original 5 candidates or from the final 3. It insinuates it was from the final 3 but it would be nice to have confirmation of the timeline.

Re: “Supes to Discuss Threatened Public Defender Lawsuit Tuesday

"Marcus, who was appointed to the post Feb. 7 and started work Monday, has come under fire from members of the local defense bar who think the process used to hire him was tainted and are concerned about several aspects of Marcus resume."

marcus is being rightly criticized by more than just a handful of local attorneys, and for reasons more than just the passage of his job application. in fact, he was appointed in a private session under the "advice" of a self appointed handful of people whos profession would be to literally discredit the cases his office presents in court, on behalf of the unwitting public he would represent. we, the people, are all victims of this blatant injustice.
