San Francisco Superior Court Judge Ronald Albers passed by the metal detector on a recent afternoon and glided in his sharp, brown suit out the front door, where a group of defendants had gathered before the day's calendar at Polk Street's Community Justice Center.
Immediately several defendants struck up conversations with the judge as if they were old friends.
Albers moved seamlessly from one conversation to the next with "his people," as he calls the defendants the court sees from the Tenderloin and South of Market neighborhoods.
