California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye will speak at a luncheon at the Riverside Mission Inn in Riverside on May 9. The occasion is “Law Day USA” a day of national dedication to the principles of the “rule of law” and our democratic form of government.  The event is sponsored by the Riverside and San Bernardino County Bar Associations and will be held at the Riverside Mission Inn in Riverside. 

In attendance will be more than 200 jurists and attorneys, according to the Judicial Council. The master of ceremonies will be retired U.S. District Court Judge Stephen G. Larson, and the Chief Justice will be introduced by Court of Appeal Presiding Judge Manual A. Ramirez. Indigent family court litigants without lawyers - who make up 75 percent of family court users - apparently are not invited to the affair.

John Adams
I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is a disgrace, that two become a law firm, and that three or more become a congress. From the musical 1776, often misattributed to John Adams

The Chief Justice will speak on the importance of Law Day USA, her experiences on state courts and current developments in the state judicial branch. This year, Law Day honors John Adams, the second president of the United States. Indigent family court litigants who cannot afford lawyers may be able to relate to John Adams’ thoughts on power and government. 
  Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God’s service when it is violating all his laws.John Adams
