Bunch of people lining the hallways waiting to get in. I try the handle again and a woman goes “damn, chill out, you’ll get your news.” She is correct!

Meantime we’re all waiting in the hallway for the courtroom to be unlocked. I’m expecting a very brief, procedural arraignment once the doors open

Hooks has been back in his courtroom at 26/Cal since January, though. Moreno and his attorney have 10 days to decide whether to ask for an automatic reassignment to a different judge, if Hooks isn’t to their liking.

He was kicked out of his courtroom last year for several months after an incident with another judge that also had him assigned to anger management training

Hooks is an interesting character even by 26th Street standards. Marine Corps veteran, has presided over several high-profile cases, and in my industry he’s what we call quotable.

Anyone sharing this on some “lol isn’t this accurate🤪” shit is a Grade-A USDA Prime Dickhead and should be addressed as such in office/social settings.

Co-defendant Wyndham Lathem, a former NU professor who allegedly helped coordinate their fantasy of killing Lathem's boyfriend and then each other, will likely seek a separate trial. Warren made an extensive confession to police, implicating Lathem, hence separate trials.

A British man accused in this gruesome 2017 high-rise stabbing will likely go to trial in the next couple of months, we learned in court today.

this is true, and abstaining from alcohol can also be a condition of release on bond. unsure how well that's ever enforced, though.

Judge Willis during the weekend has also been reminding big-quantity weed defendants that “marijuana is still illegal.”

Not disputing that necessarily, it’s just interesting to see how criminal court judges are preparing to handle this huge upcoming shift in the law.
