Judicial Independence Gets an Angry Challenge in Orange County

Hosted by

Orange County Judge Marc Kelly sparked national outrage when he ruled that the 25-year mandatory minimum sentence for a convicted child molester was "cruel and unusual punishment." Some voters want him recalled, and politicians have told him to resign.  Legal ethics prevent him from speaking out for himself, but defenders — including a retired judge — say he was just doing his job.  We hear both sides.

Also, California is tripling taxpayer subsidies for films and TV shows.  Will that really help curtail runaway production?
