Tehama Court Given $272,000 for Sabotage

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 1, 2016

At its meeting Friday, California's Judicial Council voted to give Tehama County Superior Court $272,000 in emergency funding to handle the aftermath of a technology meltdown and approved the next step in Sacramento's bid for a new courthouse.

The Tehama court suffered a huge setback this past July when former IT Director Mark Montalvo, who had been fired on June 26, 2015 over suspicious month-long phone and computer outages, logged into the court administrator account and deleted two hard drives containing the court's phone and computer infrastructure over Independence Day weekend.

The court's phones, e-mail, website, case management system, and saved files were down from July 3 to July 16. Tehama Presiding Judge Todd Bottke told the council the sabotage cost the court nearly half a million dollars.
