Rosenzweig was in private practice in Los Angeles before she joined the Office of Independent Review there. She also taught for a year at the University of California's Los Angeles School of Law. She received her law degree from the University of Michigan.
"She has been extremely valuable here in L.A.," Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said. "Ilana has worked diligently to ensure thorough and fair investigations of misconduct by the sheriff's department."
Rosenzweig should do well, even in the high politicized environment she'll be entering, said Merrick Bobb, an L.A. County-appointed monitor who helped create the Office of Iindependent Review. Bobb, a nationally recognized expert, also is executive director of the Police Accountability Research Center in L.A.
Were oh boying, because Sheriff Lee Baca of LA, had the idea to create this OIR. The same Lee Baca, that has been in the news in regard to letting Paris Hilton out of jail. ALSO an alleged player in Hollywood politics. Word is Baca was given a 1,0000 donation for election by Paris's grand daddy William Barron Hilton. Then there was the Baca incident of blocking LA Police Union Web site.
NOW THERE IS A RECALL BACA PETITION, GIVEN GREEN LIGHT BY CITY CLERK OF LA AND THE ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MADE TODAY. Our heads now start to spin in an un-fathomable fast gyration.
OIR took their start up from the input of these groups, where attorney Ilana B.R. Rosenzweig worked as a Field Agent. Asian Pacific American Legal Ctr., NACCP, The American Civil Liberties Union and The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund. Bobb and Baca. Plaintiff's attorneys often travel with OIR, we now have to ask, how much input will OIR have in relation to Daley's recent Choice of Rosenzweig? Accountability is one thing and we can only hope for fair investigations for us as well. OIR claims they are but their filled with civil rights attorney's. We can only hope. Some of the start up organizations have us wondering though. Just in time for Judicial Watch.
