Reduced Court Services

Reduced Court Services (Government Code 68106)
Superior courts statewide continue to face significant financial challenges as a result of the current fiscal crisis, which the Legislature has recognized as one of the most serious and dire ever to affect the state. In an effort to meet these challenges, while remaining open on all days that are not judicial holidays, and preserving as fully as possible access to court services for all litigants, many courts have announced plans to offer reduced services.

Under Government Code section 68106, courts must provide written notice to the public and to the Judicial Council at least 60 days before putting into effect a plan to reduce costs by closing courtrooms or clerks' offices or reducing clerks’ office hours. The council must post all such notices on this Internet site within 15 days of receiving them. This page contains all notices that the council has receive from courts pursuant to section 68106.

Please note, however, that the page does not provide complete information for individual courts. For current information about a specific superior court, the number and location of its courtrooms, its hours of operation, and any upcoming changes, please consult the court's website. A list of court websites is available.
