James Warren Speaks to Poly Prep Students
James Warren recently spoke at Poly Prep Country Day School. Appointed
on August 23, 1994 to the San Francisco Superior Court, Judge
James Warren has presided over such controversial cases as the
dog-mauling death of Diane Whipple. He holds a degree from Hofstra
University School of Law.
Inspired to come to Poly after visiting Ground Zero and at the
invitation of chemistry teacher Wynne Jones, Judge Warren informed
students about issues central to democracy, focusing on the USA
act has major implications on the civil liberties of all Americans,”
said Judge Warren. In placing his talk in an historical and socio-political
context, Judge Warren identified the strides made when his grandfather,
Justice Earl Warren, served on the U.S. Supreme Court, and how
many of those decisions are now being eroded. Judge Warren noted
that the USA Patriot Act, which was signed into law on October
26, 2001, comprises 342 pages, and makes changes, some large and
some small, to over 15 different statutes.
In addition to speaking before an assembly of students, Warren
visited numerous classes and discussed many issues that have political
implications for today’s youth and America’s future. Judge Warren
advised students to be critical thinkers and to examine the ramifications
of revisions to the law.#
