October 8: State Court System Under Funding
Tuesday, October 8, 2-3pm EST
Voice America Internet Radio will present a show on the underfunding of our state court systems hosted by Pam Hill. Chief Justice Christine Durham, former Chief Justice of Utah; Dan Hall, Vice President of the National Center for State courts; and Steve Puiszis, Chair of the Defense Research Institute’s Judicial Task Force, will be participating. Panelists are expected to discuss the extent to which budget cuts have affected the ability of litigants to access the courts, the strategies courts have taken to deal with shortfalls, and the principles by which courts should operate and be funded.
