The SF Chronicle reports that the San Fransisco Community Justice Center opened its doors today for for very first time (the article is from Heather Knight who has covered the court previously). Go Here to view the article.
Also, have a look at what "California Corrections Crisis," a blog from the faculty of UC Hastings and the Hastings Poverty and Law Journal, has to say. They think that the Chronicle should give the Center (which has been controversial with SF voters and taken longer than expected to open) a fair chance to demonstrate its success. They've been following the story of the Justice Center for while - here, here, and here. And, make sure to watch "Moving Justice Forward" for more updates.
