Court Officials Decry Budget, Say Delays Will Continue

A county court official criticized California’s 2014-15 budget in response to its recent approval by Gov. Jerry Brown. And while the effects of past cuts are likely to continue, additional cuts aren't expected, an official said Monday. The courts don’t anticipate any further reduction of service, a court official said Monday.
