Another day, another story of government waste. Today we find out that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is planning a lavish trip to Hawaii at our expense. It sounds nice, and will cost us about a million dollars.
Big Government has the details:
Judges from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, federal district and bankruptcy courts in nine Western states and two Pacific island territories, along with lawyers practicing in those courts, and court staff, will gather at the luxurious Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa from August 13 – 16, 2012 in what looks like a less than valiant attempt to ensure American justice is being served…at a cost to taxpayers of approximately one million dollars.
From tennis courts to the caddy shack and luau experience, justice will be served in a manner many Americans never get to experience. Breitbart News has reviewed a letter from the offices of the Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee, Senator Jeff Sessions, and the offices of Senator Chuck Grassley, the Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, with several detailed questions they want answered by the Ninth District.
Read the whole thing, other districts are cutting back on these conferences, but not the liberal 9th Circuit.
Why are we paying for all of these conferences, anyway?
