Conference of Delegates Passes Five LACBA Resolutions
Resolution 2-12-08: Criminal Fines: Increase in Credit Per Day of Custody (approved)
Resolution 2-14-08: Automobile Dealers: Restrictions on Dealers Deciding Recreational Vehicle Disputes (approved)
Resolution 4-5-08: Probate: Appointment of Temporary Trustee During Appeal of Probate Order (approved)
Resolution 8-11-08: Real Property: Release Upon Disclosure of Known Payments (approved)
Resolution 10-4-08: Child Support: Compromise on Arrears (approved)
LACBA's Resolution 6-7-08 on disclosure of Not Qualified ratings for the Governor's judicial nominees was withdrawn because there is a similar bill awaiting the Governor's signature. Resolution 10-3-08 on extension of time to conduct DNA testing in paternity issues was vigorously debated and defeated by four votes. Friendly amendments proposed by LACBA were instrumental in the passage of several resolutions submitted by other delegations.
