Two Santa Barbara County Superior Court offices will relocate on 10/14 to alleviate understaffing in other court locations and because of ongoing state funding cuts; the changes won’t result in any layoffs, said Darrel Parker, court executive officer. The Juvenile Court at 4500 Hollister Avenue will close, and all cases will move to the current jury assembly building at 1108 Santa Barbara Street; the Hollister Avenue location will become a training facility for the court’s new case-management system. The clerk’s office of the Solvang Division will transfer to the Lompoc Division; traffic issues handled at Solvang will continue twice per month. Pre-recession, Parker said, the county’s Superior Court system had a $42 million budget; it now hovers at $27 million and has many staffing vacancies.


Independent Discussion Guidelines

Judges could easily safe millions and aid the support staff simply by no longer codling District Attorney's and start granting meritorious defense motions dismissing weak prosecutions, and preventing serial trials of weak cases after hung juries. If the DA won't stop prosecuting weak cases and judges don't stop vindictive prosecutions by certain junior DDAs with poor judgement like Justin Nathan Greene, then they are compounding, not solving the problem.
