Trial Court Expenditures in California
About This Visualization
In 1998, voters approved Proposition 220, which allowed the judges in each county to unify their trial courts into a single superior court. By 2002, all 58 counties had voted to unify, and they now serve about 34 million people. How do expenditures compare across these courts?
Instructions: The map and the bar graph beside it display Superior court spending per legal filing. Click on a court to see a detailed breakdown of its expenditures. Hold down the ‘Shift’ key while clicking to select and compare multiple courts. Use the drop down menus to adjust for inflation and to select a particular year for which to see expenditures.
