    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. However, the new spending plan won’t allow for the restoration of “painful” self-inflicted budget cuts the courts have undergone over the last few years, said Mary Hearn, spokeswoman for Los Angeles County Superior Court. “Those were all very painful, but now we’re on solid footing,” Hearn said. “The amount allocated to the trial courts in the budget that was just signed won’t allow us to restore those cuts.”
