On December 16th, 2017 the California Judicial Council will meet to talk about ways to improve communication to criminal defendants. This will include notices to defendants, pay and fee options as well as other changes in infraction cases. Infraction cases are to least sever in California, ranking in severity under Misdemeanors and Felony convictions. Traffic convictions are typically classified as infractions.

A review of these procedures may be a good idea since traffic and other infractions make a large portion of the filings and cases in the court system taking a large amount of resources and budget. Refined and revised procedures for infractions could result in lower operating expense for the court and more productivity from court staff not bogged down with so many infraction related tasks. A video cast will be available and a link to the live videocast of the meeting will be on the California Courts website on the day of the meeting.

Although Just Document Preparation is a large Legal Document Preparation service in California, their work in the criminal courts and cases and filings with infractions is small to none. Owner Annette Gomez does not anticipate a major disruption or change in their business or the business of others in the industry with regards to any procedural changes proposed or made as a result of the meeting.
