The California Legislature has announced it's cutting $350 million from the state court system. California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye -- who describes the cutbacks as unprecedented -- joins us to discuss the repercussions.

Judges and other officials in counties around the state say the move puts public services in danger, delays trials and forces the closure of some courtrooms.

Guests:

Tani Cantil-Sakauye, chief justice of the California Supreme Court

Gerald Uelmen, professor of law at Santa Clara University

Scott Graham, editor-in-chief of The Recorder, a Northern California legal weekly

Brian Walsh, interim presiding judge for the Superior Court of California, Santa Clara County

Mary Ann Gilliard, Sacramento County Superior Court judge and director of the Alliance of California Judges
