    Proposition 115, was also called the Crime Victims' Justice Reform Act and passed in 1990. It is a benefit to crime victims since it reduces the amount of times the victims must testify and it expedites trials and increases sentences/punishment. Regarding discovery, it requires reciprocal discovery.
