FROM THIS EPISODE

Federal appeals court judges are mad as hell, and they won’t take it any more. They say there’s an “epidemic” of misconduct by prosecutors in California courts. Worse yet, district attorneys who lie and present false evidence are tolerated by state judges. The federal judges want to hold their feet to the fire.

Also, Los Angeles is now home to the only mosque in America that’s available only to women. But it’s not without pushback—from women as well as from men.

When Prosecutors Break the Law to Win 11 MIN, 16 SEC

federal appellate court judges are demanding action against what they call an “epidemic” of misconduct by California district attorneys. Video of a recent hearing of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals went viral in legal circles, showing Judge Alex Kozinski warning a deputy for state Attorney General Kamala Harris.

You need some background on the court system to understand just what that means. Maura Dolan is legal affairs writer for the LA Times. Laurie Levenson is professor of Criminal Law at the Loyola School of Law.
