News from the Center for Judicial Excellence:
Governor Signs AB 1050!
Last Friday, Governor Schwarzenegger signed AB 1050 into law! This historic legislation took over 18 months to reach the Governor’s desk. We couldn’t have passed this bill without your help sending letters, faxes, and making phone calls to legislators and the Governor! This is a great victory for children and protective parents across the state.
AB 1050 will allow children 14 and older to testify in family court, giving them a much needed voice in proceedings that greatly impact their lives. This is a first-of-its-kind measure and will change the limitations on children testifying, once it becomes effective on January 1, 2012.
