California Mandated State Court Business Day Closures – Per the Council, all state courts will be closed on the third Wednesday of each month, from September 2009 through June 2010. For further details, visit the state courts site at http://www.courtinfo.ca.gov/.
This will create delays in turn around times for all california courts, especially if there are possible records. It is unsure if public access terminals are affected at this time, but highly probable. The courts being closed will also create delays in getting the information into the computer systems and available to public access terminals due to the stresss that will be introduced to the court system having to work harder. The people most effected are the clerks and the researchers trying to get information from them in a timely manner. As researchers, we try not put the clerks in a frustrating position. If this happens then the clerks have little or no sympathy to the researchers who are pushy and demanding.
