The Commission on the Future of California’s Court System has posted further details on concepts it is exploring during its Dec. 8 public comment session: the equal distribution of judgeships throughout the state, court funding, collection of court fines and fees, and how best to process traffic infractions. The public comment session on the four concepts will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in San Francisco. Written comment is also invited. The public can listen to the comment session remotely by calling into a listen-only phone line.
