This year is a make or break year for the trial courts. If the WAFM model continues, without additional funding, donor courts will have to write checks to recipient courts out of their operating budgets. As a result, regional courts will need to lay-off workers; the public will have less access to their regional court to deal with custody battles, domestic violence cases, and other life changing legal decisions constituents rely on from the trial court system.
As court workers, we want to make sure the trial courts are well funded so that Californians— regardless of county—are able to obtain legal service in a reliable timeframe.
Tell Your Legislator: Work on a budget that's fair. Keep trial courts whole.
