Chief justice seeks lawyers for poor in civil cases

California's top judge said Tuesday that he wants the state to provide lawyers for the poor in civil cases such as child custody disputes and evictions in which people often have to represent themselves.

Chief Justice Ronald George said he will ask Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to test the idea by funding a pilot project in three counties -- one small, one medium-size and one large -- to provide attorneys for low-income litigants in a limited category of cases, including family law and housing, in which important individual rights are at stake. He didn't identify the counties.

The state and federal governments now provide lawyers for the poor in criminal cases, but not in civil lawsuits. Some money for representation in civil cases is provided by the State Bar and a federal legal assistance program, but Congress has limited the federal funding and restricted the types of cases that federally funded lawyers can accept.

In some parts of California, plaintiffs and defendants in 80 to 90 percent of civil cases come to court without lawyers, George said in his annual meeting with reporters who cover the state Supreme Court.

He said he raised the small-scale pilot project a few weeks ago in a meeting with Schwarzenegger, who told him that "new programs will be frowned upon'' as the state tries to eliminate a .5 billion deficit.

George said he suggested, half-seriously, that the program be named for Schwarzenegger's father-in-law, Sargent Shriver, who helped to found the Peace Corps and directed anti-poverty programs under President Lyndon Johnson. The governor burst out laughing but made no commitment, George said.

The chief justice also said he may advocate another three-county pilot project to pay for court interpreters in civil cases that involve basic rights. Schwarzenegger vetoed legislation in October that would have provided interpreters for civil cases in all counties, saying the cost of as much as million a year was too high.

Assemblyman Dave Jones, D-Sacramento, a former Legal Aid attorney who is working on both issues with George, said the pilot programs would be a first step in addressing "a huge justice gap.''

California has one lawyer for every 240 people but only one Legal Aid attorney for every 8,737 poor people, said Jones, the Assembly Judiciary Committee chairman and author of the interpreter bill that Schwarzenegger vetoed. He also said 7 million Californians could require interpreters if they appeared in court.

Jones said that "judges have testified (before the Assembly committee) about family law matters, separations, divorces, where the court has to get the couple's 13-year-old kid to interpret or grab someone in the hallway who speaks the language.''
