During the Great Recession, state court budgets took a beating. States like California and Minnesota cut budgets so severely that they had to shut down certain operations. Elsewhere, dozens of states instituted hiring freezes meaning there were fewer clerks, administrative staff, and interpreters to handle increasing legal issues caused by the recession.
Paul De Muniz, now retired Chief Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court, gave clear context to the impact of these cuts. “…[R]evenue shortfalls in many states are so great that proposed cuts to judicial budgets can imperil the judiciary’s constitutional responsibility to administer justice impartially, completely, and without delay,” he stated in a 2011 speech.
