Delay debate

Jon Eisenberg has a letter to the DJ editor today--responding to Moskovitz's article yesterday--captioned as Delays are far longer than need to 'get it right':

My complaint to the Commission on Judicial Performance, however, focuses on appeals where a few justices of the 3rd District have inarguably taken far longer than the time needed to get it right. The latest example is People v. Sanders, C083382 (Murray, J.), filed Feb. 26, 2021, which languished for three years and eight months from the date it became fully briefed until submission for decision.

Also today's Exceptionally Appealing column is The other 3R's: reversed, remanded, reassigned, about when appellate courts remand cases to be reassigned to a different judge.
