UTAH STATE COURTS PLAN JUDGE FOR A DAY PROGRAM

Salt Lake City, UT—The Utah State Courts are planning the 10th Annual “Judge for a Day,” program in recognition of Law Day, which is celebrated on May 1, 2015. On May 1, 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed the first Law Day as a day of national dedication to the principle of government under law.

Utah high school students are selected to participate in the program based on an essay, civic involvement resume or teacher nomination letter. For students who choose to write an essay the Law Day theme is “Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law.”  Perhaps more than any other document in human history, the Magna Carta has come to embody a simple but enduring truth: No one, no matter how powerful, is above the law.

Utah woman posed as lawyer, defended client, cops say

admin : January 1, 2015 12:44 pm : In the News

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/utah-woman-posed-as-lawyer-defended-client-cops-say/

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah – Authorities in Utah say a woman impersonated an attorney and even went as far as defending a client and signing court documents, reports CBS affiliate KUTV.

Karla Carbo, 29, was arrested Tuesday in Summit County and charged with identity theft, forgery and communications fraud.

Authorities say Carbo assumed the identity of a legitimate attorney with a similar name and used the attorney’s Utah State Bar identification number, reports the station.

Officials say Carbo impersonated the lawyer on Dec. 23 when she appeared in the Third District Court of Summit County to represent a suspect in a 2008 criminal case, according to the station.
