Los Angeles County Court System To Eliminate 300 Jobs In June

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Taking care of legal matters in Los Angeles County could soon take a lot longer.

Court administrators plan to eliminate more than 300 jobs at the end of June to save $300 million over several years.

The court system has already lost 10 percent of its workforce to layoffs and attrition over the past two years.

Courtrooms will be restructured, which officials say will affect every judicial officer and staff member.

    It’s $300 million over several years, not one year. Nobody is making a Mil a year in the County. However, the story lacks more specific information…so who knows if this is even accurate. Looks like they should have obtained more facts before printing this…..or they were just looking for headline shock value. Just an observation

    OK TEA BAGGERS; YOU WANT SMALL GOVERNMENT YOU’LL GET SMALL GOVERNMENT. WAIT UNTIL YOU’RE ACCUSED FALSELY OF A CRIME AND NEED TO WAIT TWO OR THREE YEARS UNTIL YOUR CASE COMES UP FOR TRIAL TO CLEAR YOUR NAME.
    MAYBE THEN YOU’LL BELIEVE IN THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO A SPEEDY TRIAL. BY THEN IT’S TOO LATE.
