Chief Justice’s Statement on 2018–2019 State Budget

Posted By Administration, Thursday, June 28, 2018

June 27, 2018

"The judicial branch budget presented by the Legislature and signed by the Governor represents a tremendous investment in providing equal access to justice for all Californians.

I want to acknowledge the dedication and perseverance of judicial officers, court executives and staff, Judicial Council staff, attorneys, and justice system partners who, through good times and bad, have doggedly advocated for adequately funding California’s courts.

This year’s stellar result for the branch would not have been possible without the Judicial Council’s Administrative Director Martin Hoshino. Martin’s leadership skills in government and his singular determination as a public servant to do the most good for the most people have led us to this very welcome 2018-2019 State Budget."

SCCBA Statement Opposing the Separation of Children and Parents Seeking Entry to the United States

Posted By Administration, Thursday, June 21, 2018
The SCCBA strongly opposes any government policy or congressional action that violates the due process rights of migrants seeking entry to the United States, including indefinite detentions, forcibly separating children from their parents, and forcing children, including toddlers, to appear in court on their own with no right to appointed counsel. These practices not only violate due process, but they are in opposition to the humanitarian values which represent founding principles of our democracy.


Additionally, the SCCBA endorses the letter  by ABA President Hilarie Bass, published Wednesday, June 20, 2018, subsequent to the Trump administration issuing an Executive Order on families being separated at the US border.   Issued June 21, 2018
