Governor Jerry Brown and the Legislature cut $350 million from the court system this past fiscal year.</p><p></p><p>In response, courts across the state have had to reduce hours and lay off staff. In San Diego, San Bernardino, Tulare, and Fresno counties, whole courthouses have closed down. That means people who have civil and family court proceedings like restraining orders, custody cases, and divorce will have to travel further, wait longer, and pay more to use the legal system.</p><p></p> Thu, 15 Nov 2012 23:13:41 +0000 Nicole Jones 19454 at http://kalw.org Court budget crisis creates long lines at legal self-help centers
