There is a lovely bronze lettered new sign on the door of Department 2J. The sign eloquently displays “All electronic devices prohibited” and cites a penal code.
This sign has not blessed the doorway of Department 2 J before and no other court room in the Riverside Superior Court contains said sign. Department 2 J has the distinction of being the only department to visually display such a prohibitive sign.
The question that does come to mind is why is there such a lack of PUBLIC TRANSPARENCY in Department 2 J?
But folks, let’s analyze that statement a little. Electronic devices these days covers cell phones, laptops, ipads, pdas, hearing aids and pacemakers, apparently all prohibited in Department 2J. Although arguably it could be blessing not to hear the day-to-day sermon of Judge Dale Wells, attorneys have no way of keeping in contact with their clients, pacemakers apparently have to be shut off and there is a virtual blackout of electronic communication in Department 2 J.
