Proposed Amendment No. 6
« on: October 20, 2018, 02:22:19 PM »
Right of Crime Victims; Judges

Creates constitutional rights for victims of crime; requires courts to facilitate victims' rights; authorizes victims to enforce their rights throughout criminal and juvenile justice processes.  Requires judges and hearing officers to independently interpret statutes and rules rather than deferring to government agency's interpretation.  Raises mandatory retirement age of state justices and judges from seventy to seventy-five years; deletes authorization to complete judicial term if one-half of term has been served by retirement age.

We have a "Victims Rights" law in AZ, and it's routinely ignored by the courts.  There had better be an enforcement provision or it's worthless.
I will NOT comply.

No.  Too many issues addressed in one amendment.
