Re "Justice system in California is under budgetary assault" (Viewpoints, Feb. 19" Brian Kabateck is correct that justice delayed can sometimes be justice denied.
But justice denied can also be a trial court which ignores basic principles of due process in order to have swift trials. Justice denied can be supervising courts declining to supervise in the interest of expediency. Justice denied can be an emphasis on speed over correct results.
As an attorney currently arguing the issue in federal court, I prefer slow justice over a rush to judgment with little regard for accuracy.
