California:  Huge Cuts for Court

The San Francisco Superior Court announced Monday that it was laying off more than 40% of its staff and shuttering 25 courtrooms because of budget cuts. Presiding Judge Katherine Feinstein said the actions were necessary to close a $13.75 million budget deficit caused by state budget cuts. The civil justice system in San Francisco is collapsing, Judge Feinstein said.
