Any effort to promote transparency should be celebrated, and the prospect of a fairer playing field should be appreciated by any lawyer.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 22, 2015
According to an article published October 7th by the Huffington Post, a new law signed by California Gov. Jerry Brown aims to reduce prosecutorial misconduct by empowering judges through the ability to dismiss any prosecuting attorneys that have been found to be withholding evidence from defense attorneys in a case. Motivated by a recent surge of prosecutor misconduct, the law is largely heralded by a step in the right direction by the legal community, and will likely serve as a powerful deterrent to keep legal actions above the board. According to the personal injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Burg & Brock, any effort to promote transparency should be celebrated, and the prospect of a fairer playing field should be appreciated by any lawyer.
The article notes that in these situations where a prosecutor was found withholding evidence, they and their firms claimed, more often than not, that it was due to an accidental omission. Even if this is an accurate representation of what happened, The Law Offices of Burg & Brock explain that the law will serve as a deterrent that may make the representatives of the state work harder to ensure that no mistakes of this nature are made. They explain that, while some prosecutors may not like the fact that they have to devote extra resources to insuring that everything is clear and above board, the potential errors that this extra care may prevent will likely be beneficial in terms of preventing unjust convictions.
They explain that, as personal injury lawyers, much of their job pertains to a similar system of deterrents that makes the world a better place for all involved. In fact, they explain, a large majority of the personal injury cases that they fight have strong deterrent capabilities in terms of preventing future injuries. Whenever a lawsuit determines that the injuries of a claimant were in fact caused by the negligent actions of the defendant, others who may be in a similar business or situation as the defendant may be motivated to take additional safety steps so that they are not faced with a similar punishment in the future. It is certainly true that they may be unhappy with the additional effort or expense that may be involved, just as the lawyers affected by this recently passed law may be unhappy with the extra work they are faced with to ensure they are not penalized. Yet, The Law Offices of Burg & Brock explain that both of these deterrents will have a net positive effect for society as a whole.
