CA Chief Justice Cantil-Sakauye Discusses State of Courts

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, January 20, 2015

California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye offered a strong defense of her administration of the courts, saying she has instituted reforms that are making the state's judicial system more efficient.

"During the time that I have been chief we have cut the AOC (Administrative Office of the Courts) by 30 percent. We have made radical changes and we are continuing to do that," she said.

The leader of the state's judiciary was interviewed on NBC4's "News Conference" program.

Cantil-Sakauye has been criticized by a group of lower-court judges for not doing enough to send resources to Superior Courts in the state's 58 counties. The Alliance of California Judges seized on a recent audit which questioned nearly $30 million in court staff spending. The audit noted the use of 66 state cars by staff, that some court administrators made more than the governor and had offices in three cities instead of one.
