KALW Crosscurrents: Jeff Adachi on Community Justice Center

San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi has some quarrels with the way Mayor Gavin Newsom has handled his department’s budget. Recently, he took the case that his office is overworked to a district judge, who ruled he could immediately transfer three-quarters of its nearly 200 cases from the newly formed Community Justice Center to private attorneys… with the city picking up the tab.

Ben Trefny of KALW’s Crosscurrents sits down with Jeff Adachi to ask him what’s going on with his work at the Community Justice Center.
