So here's the thing.... if a particular judge regularly mandates particular types of criminals to aa - can they be held accountable for making aa an open air prison?  Seriously, if a judge loads the deck with criminals could they not be held accountable because they are aware of how many are being sent to the same place?

Nope.  Unfortunately!


Here in the U.S., the judicial system has set judges up as to be untouchable.  The concept is called "Absolute Judicial Immunity", and unless a judge is doing something that is bright-line fraud, the judge has immunity from lawsuits.


Here is a discussion of the concept >> http://nahmodlaw.com/2013/03/14/a-section-1983-primer-9-absolute-judicial-immunity/

Well, the immunity afforded judges does make sense it most cases.  Everybody with an axe to grind would be clogging the courts with law suits against judges if immunity were not in place.


However, I am pissed that a judge can violate an individual's rights under our constitution and not face some type of official, legal repercussions.  An idea that I have is to write letters to each state's supreme court to "educate" them that mandatory AA/12 step is unconstitutional.  In addition, if a specific judge is constantly mandating AA/12 step, a complaint can be filed with that judges licensing authority.  Judges are subject to their licensing authority just like other licensed attorneys and maybe we can get judges disciplined in some manner for mandating people to this billshit crap of a program.

Contacting all the law societies to enform them of the rulings that are going on and asking them to inform their lawyers/judges may also be a quick way to get it done......  maybe an official looking pamphlet with some of the wordings form the judgements may do it.
