According to Chiv:
Chief Judge Phyllis J. Hamilton praises the program: "In the nearly two years that the Ombudsperson Program has been in place, attorneys and judges alike have credited the program with providing an important channel for bench-bar communication about issues affecting attorneys' work on behalf of their clients in our courtrooms—the very heart of the court's mission and purpose. The Ombudsman Program is a vital part of our court's commitment to providing outstanding service to the public. I am pleased that Judges Smith and Kleinberg will continue assisting the court with this important service in the year to come."(John Chiv Words Worth.)
