Here’s a link to a video that I thought some people may find amusing and informative. It’s amusing because the judge challenges the public defender to a fight when he won’t waive his client’s speedy trial right (Rule 45) and insists on a trial as soon as possible. It’s informative because it shows some of the pressures criminal defenses lawyers are under from judges hostile to some of the fundamental rights of the Constitution, such as due process and a criminal defendant’s right to a speedy trial. You can find the video here.
