    To call these "invitation only" proceedings "hearings" on the need for civil legal services is a bit of stretch, since only supporters of the various political action groups who receive such moneys will participate. This one-sided stacking of the audience silences debate over this highly controversial undertaking by which the judiciary gives away millions of its budgeted monies to not-for-profit advocacy groups favored by court administrators. The unconstitutional nature of these gifts is apparently beyond discussion and thus will not be weighed by those doling out the dough.
