This reduction in public hours reflects a mandatory reduction 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, which is normally 4:30 p.m. in most of the 13 counties, the officials said.
