Los Angeles, CA — According to Civil Rights Attorney Stephen Yagman the California Supreme Court is basically a “cesspool” consisting of “six hacks and one wonderful justice”. In this preview of a two-part Full Disclosure television interview with Emmy award winning host Leslie Dutton, Yagman takes on the entire justice system saying that there are "unfair" Federal Judges who hear Civil Rights cases who are generally unfair to anyone who appears before them and he describes practicing attorneys as "mostly wimp asses” who are in business to make money. This program, from the Full Disclosure Archives, was videotaped on September 28, 2001
When asked how many lawsuits he had filed against the Los Angeles Police Department, Yagman said perhaps 1,500 to 1,600 of which 25 percent get thrown out before trial another 10 or 15 percent settle and 65 percent of them go to trial. When describing fellow Civil Rights Attorney Johnny Cochran, Yagman's choice of words had to be bleeped out for cable television consumption. However, the unedited version can be viewed via streaming media on the Full Disclosure website.
Full Disclosure interviews over the past twelve years have documented the problems encountered in the criminal justice system from the broad perspectives of law enforcement, judiciary, public defenders and criminal defense attorneys.
The Full Disclosure Network is billed as "the news behind the news" and featured on 43 cable systems and the Internet. In 2002 the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences presented Host Leslie Dutton with a local public affairs Emmy Award for the information series "L.A.'s War Against Terrorism" featuring LAPD offcials, L.A. County Sheriff Leroy Baca and L. A. Councilman Mark Ridely-Thomas.
