California has a new governor, and advocates of the judiciary could not be more prepared.
Gone is Gov. Jerry Brown, a stingy court-funder whose annual judiciary budgets emphasized restraint, demanded efficiencies and placed restrictions on new spending.
In Brown’s place is Gov. Gavin Newsom, the son of the late First District Court of Appeal Justice William Newsom Jr., whom lawyers, judges and court workers are hoping will grant some pretty significant asks.
