Curtis Child, a former executive with the Administrative Office of the Courts, has miffed some judges around the state after sending a widespread email touting the virtues of his new employer, CourtCall LLC.
Child's emails went out in early July to judges, Judicial Council employees and at least one reporter. In the missive, Child said that he started a new job on July 1 as director of court and government affairs for CourtCall, which offers audio and video services allowing attorneys to appear remotely for court proceedings.
"I hope that we will have the opportunity to work together on ways to create greater efficiencies in the judicial process," Child wrote. "I will be in touch but please feel free to contact me anytime if I can provide any assistance or information about CourtCall's services."
CourtCall, which operates across the United States and internationally, is the sole provider of remote-appearance services in California courts.
