Judge says Sacramento federal court facing 'crisis'

Posted By Paula Collis, Friday, November 13, 2015

The top federal judge in Sacramento has begun speaking out about what he says is a crisis.

Chief U.S. District Judge Morrison England said a lack of judges in the Eastern District of California has slowed the wheels of justice.

"I think there's some frustration that's starting to get to the judges," England said during a recent interview.

The Eastern District of California stretches from the Oregon border to Bakersfield. Even though the region's population has grown dramatically, the number of full-time judges has remained at six since 1978.

According to statistics from the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, federal judges handle an average of 554 cases per year.
