The Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara operates a Traffic Courthouse in Santa Clara. Currently, the traffic night court calendars are heard four times each month in Departments 55 and 56. Effective August 3, 2015, these calendars will be reduced to twice a month, eliminating the two calendars heard each month in Department 55.
Traffic night court calendars will be heard on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at the Santa Clara Courthouse in Department 56. The Santa Clara Courthouse is located at 1095 Homestead Road, Santa Clara, California.
The Court finds the above actions are necessary due to the significant and continuing cuts to the State Judicial Branch Budget. Since 2009, state funding for the judicial branch has been significantly reduced, with those reductions impacting the budgets of individual superior courts. The funding for FY 2015-16 does not make it fiscally feasible to keep these courts open.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. If you would like to submit comments about the proposed reductions, please send them to David H. Yamasaki, Court Executive Officer, 191 North First Street, San Jose, California 95113 by August 3, 2015.
