Grand jury reviews Lawyer in Library program

By From page A4 | May 09, 2014

FAIRFIELD — The Solano County grand jury issued a report Thursday on its scrutiny of the local Lawyer in the Library program.

The report found the program sometimes encounters hurdles in finding volunteer attorneys to offer up free legal advice on civil law matters during preset times, a few hours a week, at county libraries in Vallejo, Vacaville and Benicia.

The report recommended expanding the program to the libraries in Fairfield and Dixon and recommended that the members of the Solano County Bar Association start actively promoting the program.

    The Grand Jury should be investigating DuBain's conduct in office but since DuBain controls those toothless old dogs that don't hunt, then the issue is moot!
