Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's order to send prisoners to other states was judged illegal by Superior Court Judge Gail Ohanesian. Professor Weisberg comments on the subject.

Stanford University Law Professor Robert Weisberg said the court "can order the release of prisoners, or they can do it indirectly by saying, 'Sorry, no more admissions.'"
