FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – JUNE 3, 2015

IMPORTANT PUBLIC NOTICE
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,
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.
