This reduction in public hours reflects a mandatory reducation in court staff hours from 40 hours per week to 37.5 hours per week as a result of budget cuts in the Eighth Judicial District. Courtroom activities will continue through the end of Friday's workday; normally 4:30 p.m. in most of the thirteen coun- ties. The Eighth Judicial District faces a reduced operating budget as a result of judicial branch budget realloca- tions and legislative budget reduc- tions.
