Position cut as SF Superior Court struggles

The San Francisco Superior Court faces a $14.3 million deficit next fiscal year, and a $166,000 a year management position was just eliminated.

The court will no longer have an Assistant Chief Executive Officer, which used to supervise six senior court staffers. The current executive officer, Sherri Camps, is retiring at the end of the year.

Mostly funded by the state, the city’s courthouses have been hit hard in the last couple years. There’s been a hiring, expenditure and travel freeze since April 2009. In addition, the Court is closed the third Wednesday of every month through June 2010.

“Like other Courts in the state, the San Francisco Superior Court has been forced to eliminate the ACEO position due to a budget scenario that is only getting worse,” Presiding Judge James McBride said in a press release. “This was a difficult decision, but it made the most sense given the dire budget forecast we face in the upcoming fiscal year.”
