Manuel Rose, retired Delta municipal judge, dies at 95 - East Bay TimesTuesday, July 09, 2019
A champion of the environment and the “little guy,” retired Delta Municipal Court Judge Manuel C. Rose has died after a long illness. The longtime judge and former Antioch resident was 95.Rose died on June 20 in Walnut Creek. He grew up in San Pablo, graduated from Richmond High School and later UC Berkeley and Boalt Hall law school, and served in the U.S. Navy during World War II before going to work as a lawyer for Winters and Winters, an Antioch firm he later bought.In 1951 his life would take a turn when the state Legislature decided justices of the peace and city judges should merge in what would be called “justice courts.” At 29, Rose took up the challenge and edged out the current city judge to become one of the youngest judges elected in the state at the time.The job was part-time so he maintained his downtown Antioch law practice, but by 1969 the Antioch and Pittsburg courts consolidated and he went to work full-time in what was first called the River Municipal Court and later the Delta Municipal Court, based in Pittsburg. He remained there for 30 years until retiring in 1983 and later filling in for vacationing judges throughout the cou... https://www.eastbaytimes.com/2019/07/02/manuel-rose-retired-longtime-municipal-judge-succumbs-at-95/

Texas Florist Who Admitted to Being in Pelosi’s Office Wants Case Moved from D.C. Because of ‘Cancel Culture’ - Law & CrimeWednesday, March 31, 2021
Washington, D.C. because of “cancel culture.” The defense for Texas florist Jenny Louise Cudd, who was on video happily admitting to being in the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, asserted authorities were creating the “illusion” of a conspiracy between her and Eliel Rosa by linking their cases.“According to the Government’s Statement of Facts, the two were seen on security footage walking into the building, walking around, and walking out,” attorney Marina Medvin said in a filing Wednesday. “There is no evidence of communications or a plan between the two to enter the Capitol. Instead, the evidence is purported to be that they were at the same place, at the same time, followed a crowd into the open doors of the Capitol building, then walked out. They didn’t take anything, they didn’t break anything.”Cudd was among rioters raiding the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6, after then-President Donald Trump continued to lie that he actually won the 2020 presidential election. The invaders postponed but did not prevent Congress for counting electoral college votes weighing in favor of the real winner, President Joe ... https://lawandcrime.com/u-s-capitol-siege/texas-florist-who-admitted-to-being-in-pelosis-office-wants-case-moved-from-d-c-because-of-cancel-culture/
