In Los Angeles, a former attorney named Richard Fine has been jailed for 14 months on contempt of court, because he allegedly refuses to turn over some paperwork and answer questions after he was told to pay an opposing client's attorney fees, CNN reports.
Fine, who was a taxpayer advocate, says he's the victim of retaliation. The judges there get an extra $57K per year from the county as a retention bonus -- which means they almost never rule against the county, Fine says. He's frequently called the judges corrupt and appealed their decisions.
