This week, Ventura County Superior Court officials said 20 employees, including seven temporary court reporters, are going to be let go by June 22 because of a state budget reduction of as much as $14 million.
All but one part-time court have been relocated to Ventura from the Simi Valley courthouse because of the financial reduction.
In Los Angeles, it's much worse.
The state-budget wrecking ball impacted hundreds of jobs along with closing down dozens of courtrooms, LA court officials announced today in a press release.
Los Angeles Superior Court officials stated that 431 court employees will be impacted because of its $30 million budget deficit.
This will affect nearly 1 of every 10 workers at Los Angeles Superior Court, the largest trial court in the nation, officials stated today in a press release.
To save $6.8 million, 56 civil and criminal courtrooms will be closed.
The 431 court staff impacted includes 157 employees being laid off, according to court officials.
There will be 108 workers who will lose 40 percent of their salaries when they are moved to a three-day-week schedule.
Eighty six of the staff will suffer pay cuts of between 5 percent to 40 percent when they are reclassified to lower-level positions.
Eighty workers will be transferred to new jobs because their old positions have been eliminated.
