Mr. Starr Babcock, who was recently appointed as Chief Trial Counsel, acknowledged in the article that State Bar staff meet with Beth Jay on a regular basis. (Mr. Babcock's comments were made prior to his appointment as Chief Trial Counsel)
Mr. Starr Babcock: "The thing that's real clear is that when you talk to her (Beth Jay), you can be real sure she has gotten, and is carrying, a clear directive from the chief (justice)." Beth Jay "is clearly giving direction about something he has thought a lot about. You don't need to go back and ask, 'Did I get this right?'" (Photo: courtesy of Cal Bar Journal)
