Up to $93 million from special funds to support trial courts
Money will benefit self-help centers, other court expenses
SAN FRANCISCO • The California Judicial Council will decide this week where to allocate up to $93 million of special funds to support trial courts.
The council will consider recent recommendations from a judiciary subcommittee during a two-day public meeting which starts Thursday in San Francisco, according to the state judiciary.
The Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee, of which San Bernardino County Court Presiding Judge Marsha G. Slough is a member, met last week to discuss how to distribute the money from the Trial Court Trust Fund and the State Trial Court Improvement and Modernization Fund.
The two special funds provide primary support to self-help centers, technology support and initiatives, the civil litigation program, education of judges and court staff and reimbursement for other court costs, according to the state judiciary.
