As much as I like historic anecdotes, I would like to move this discussion to this day and age, and pose the question: Are we, who live in Los Angeles County, California, accorded the Habeas Corpus right, name by the late Justice Brennan "cornerstone of the US Constitution"?
I believe that the Habeas Corpus right, in and of itself, is meaningless, absent the common law right to access court records - to inspect and to copy. How could anybody argue that his/her imprisonment "conforms with the fundamentals of the law" pursuant to Fay v Noia (1963) absent access to court records in his/her case?
The common law right to access court records was re-affirmed by the US Supreme Court in Nixon v Warner Communications, Inc (1978). However, in the case of Richard Fine, the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, to this date denies access to the Register of Actions (California civil docket) in Marina v LA County (BS109420), in ancillary proceedings of which Richard Fine was purported to have been imprisoned.
The purported habeas corpus petition at the US Court, Central District of California was purportedly conducted absent such foundation record...
Therefore, one must conclude that in Los Angeles County, California, the habeas corpus right is non-existent...
