California budget cuts force court closings

A freeze on filling judicial vacancies seems like pretty tame stuff compared with the steps being taken in Los Angeles to address California’s budget woes.

The county superior court is laying off 379 workers and closing 17 courtrooms, according to the National Law Journal.

That’s in the context of 5,400 workers and 580 courtrooms, which would apparently make the county system larger than the entire Virginia system, which has just over 400 judges total.
