The followers of Themis in Alameda Superior Court (ASC) have alerted me that layoff letters have been sent to court employees. The details are still a bit sketchy but it appears that ASC may be following San Francisco Superior Court’s lead in restructuring its civil division. Initial reports are that those affected are clerks, court reporters, and court supervisors. Total number of layoff notices sent is unclear at this time.
More news and details to come as they develop. Of course, if you know more about this, leave a comment.
