Gov. Schwarzenegger signed the 2010 State Bar fee bill.
Fee statements for the $410 yearly fees for active members will be sent out immediately with a due date of March 1. Inactive members pay $125.
Schwarzenegger vetoed the fee bill in October, citing as one reason a leak that one of his judicial nominees, former State Sen. Chuck Poochigian, was rated “not qualified” by the Committee on Judicial Nominees Evaluation (JNE). (Poochigan was later confirmed as an appellate court judge.) Miller created a task force to investigate the leak. The task force, led by William Gailey, a Schwarzenegger appointee to the State Bar board and head of a private investigation firm, issued a report last month saying that despite an extensive investigation, it could not identify who leaked the information. William “Bill” Gailey is a licensed Private Investigator, the Founder and Chairman of Gailey Associates, Inc. Gailey Associates, Inc. is a professional investigations firm with offices in Orange County and Los Angeles, California.
