what the judge did is that if you are in the system and then you cannot be deported pending further action. this is a preliminary injunction to freeze things until more work can be done. >> it provides protections for the dreamers for the time being while this is handled in the courts. the judge saying killing the program was really improper to do while the legal challenges are pending. >> improper for number of reasons. number one the judge said the attorney general was under misapprehension of law that he made it mistake of law by saying the ta program -- daca program was illegal. the judge went into great lengths to explain why the program was valid and that it was it different program than another one that had been declared invalid in texas and the fifth circuit.
4:21 pm
essential he is saying the attorney general was wrong and everything else flows from that mistake. >> is this good news for the immigrants who are protected under daca or does it add another layer of uncertainty? >> it is temporary news. the problem is they have been living for many months under uncertainty not knowing whether the problem was going to be fixed in congress or not. ironically earlier in the day we saw the film showing the president negotiating on camera with a lot of members of congress and going back and forth about whether daca was an easy fix or not. the real solution will be in washington. for the people who have been protected by daca, if this junction holds, and it will be appeal to the ninth circuit with any matter of days, it at least temporarily has a reprieve and they do not have to worry that on march 5 there is a risk that people might get deported.

woman: so, greg, it's a lot to take in.
4:41 pm
woman 2: and i know that's hard to hear, but the doctors caught it early. hi, blake! my dad has cancer. woman: and i know how hard that is to hear. but you're in the right place. man: and dr. pascal and her team, they know what to do. they know what to do. the doctors know what to do. so here's the plan. first off, we're going to give you all... (voice fading away) it is a rather unusual motion. and alameda county superior court judge has ruled to allow the use of public money to cover the cost of defending max harris. he is one of two defendants
4:42 pm
accused of 36 counts of involuntary manslaughter in the ghost ship warehouse fire that happened more than year ago. let's talk more about the use of public money with our legal analyst. michael, you said it is unusual but not completely rare. >> they have the fund there so remember we have a public defenders office in alameda county so some might ask, why don't they put the public defender there. if that attorney needs money why should the county and taxpayers pay for it. it does not work that way. it is like an alternate defender program. hypothetically i take over a case i am the attorney. i am being paid but all of a sudden in the middle they run out of money and cannot pay me. i can then go to the court, i know the case better than anybody, i have worked 800 hours on this case so why would
4:43 pm
you push it to the public defender who would have to do 800 hours worth of work? the court then comes in if the defense makes emotion and says, we want to be paid. he cannot afford to pay us so we want the county to pay. a lot of those motions are denied by the judge they say let them go get somebody else or let them go to the public defender. this is a complicated case and that is what the judge is allowing the county to pay. >> in this case the attorney started out working on this on a pro bono case because he knew the defendant max harris was not going to be able to pay him. to come back now to the court and say i have invested in the firm has invested, i think he estimated it was 800 hours spent on the case to then say, we are exhausted. we need to be paid. what do you make of that?>> that happens where you want to do something pro bono you get into it and it explodes like a
4:44 pm
bomb. >> the ghost ship warehouse, 36 people, manslaughter. >> that is what is unusual for judge to say we will start paying you. i know he started pro bono. most attorney start by being paid and then they run out of money and that is what i was talking about. in this case he starts pro bono. i would think there was some money exchanged. some clients that have very little money will pay a little bit and say let me pick up this cost but i cannot pay for you. you go to the judge and make a motion. you do not want to get a conviction in the case. the judge worries about an appeal. if we get a conviction they will say, you would not pay us, someone else came in and there is another avenue for the defense two and appealable issue. >> not retroactive so he will not be reimbursed for the 800 hours. this is just moving forward.
4:45 pm
>> yes. i know tony was in it from the get-go pro bono. he said he does not want to get paid. tony does that in a lot of cases. he is a good attorney and a great trial attorney. i do not know much about the other attorney but i know he will get $150 per hour for doing the rest of the trial. when they go to the county and ask for the money, they scrutinize it. they are very judicious in giving the money to the attorney. a lot of attorneys wanted to because it is difficult to get the money. by the time you put in the hours you are not getting paid for the real value of the work you put in. >> thank you for explaining that. let's turn things over to mark. tomorrow you should be okay. you may need fog lights for the morning commute because the rain will move out and be
4:46 pm
replaced by fog. we get a break for couple of days. take a look at some of the totals. monday, tuesday to this afternoon you may have encountered showers. kentfield, san francisco, 3.5 inches. oakland 2.39 inches. widespread moderate to heavy rain across portions across the entire bay area but as you can see things starting to quiet a little. we're looking for our next chance of rain fall. we are taking this long-term and could track another system into next week. it will not be in major deal, a classic setup with the boca rainfall to our north and the amounts fading out as you work your way closer to monterey bay. satellite showing the clouds and scattered rain showers across portions throughout the day. low-level moisture.
4:47 pm

4:48 pm
we will have areas of dense fog in the central valley even around the bay itself. as we head toward the weekend a dry weather pattern in it bump in the numbers and more 60s in the forecast. being pushed up to our north for the next chance of shower activity, as we head toward tuesday of next week. our forecast model showing the fog and rain fall to our north. not to mention there may be at chance of a sprinkle in the up northbay tomorrow especially up in sonoma county where the clouds will be out the afternoon hours. you slight chance of a sprinkle or light shower. for the rest of the bay area skies become cloudy and once again as we head toward friday morning we will do it all over with fog in the morning and clearing skies into the afternoon forecast eyes for tomorrow mainly in the 50s. warmest locations approaching 60. san jose 60, gilroy 62. your five day forecast, it quite weather pattern.
4:49 pm
we will gradually pick up the clouds by monday and maybe rain showers extending into tuesday. thankfully this was not a three to five day storm. looking back at december it was so dry that set us up. we will take what we can get. frank joins us now they look at some stories where working on for ktvu fox news at 5:00. sadly some new numbers. >> emergency responders updated the search for survivors in the death toll following the mudslides in montecito in southern california. we know 17 people are confirmed dead and at least 13 others are missing. tonight at 5:00 we will get information on the situation. some thieves with very good taste took off with quite the
