The Supreme Court will hold its June 2013 oral arguments in the San Francisco courtroom instead of Los Angeles, Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye announced today. June arguments are usually held in Los Angeles.
“Ongoing judicial branch budget cuts have affected all courts, including the Supreme Court, and we, like the entire branch, are required to make difficult decisions to operate within our budget,” Cantil-Sakauye said. “Our court decided that it would be prudent to hold its June 2013 oral argument calendar at its San Francisco headquarters, rather than travel to Los Angeles. .”
December 2012 and April 2013 will still be held in Los Angeles.
