Can Judges Plead the Fifth?

Gavel in judge's hand.Have you ever watched a movie or read a story set in a courtroom and wondered,  “Is that even legal?” Well, maybe it’s time you ask a judge. CSUN is holding its yearly “Cross Examine the Judges” event, during which the public asks a dozen Superior Court judges questions.

“We hold this event every year as an outgrowth of the department’s Judicial Internship Program,” said Lawrence Becker, chair of the Department of Political Science. “It provides a way for members of the court, who generally do not interact with the public outside the confines of the courtroom, to answer questions from the public and, of course, from students.”
