From Cory T. Jasperson, Director of Government Affairs for the Judicial Council:
Earlier today, the Judicial Council met by teleconference—the second time in less than 10 days—and approved additional temporary statewide measures in response to COVID-19. These included actions to protect individuals’ rights relating to temporary restraining orders, visitation, evictions and foreclosures as well as adopting an emergency bail schedule setting bail at $0 for most misdemeanor and low-level felony offenses. If you didn’t have the opportunity to listen in, the audio recording and post-meeting recap are now available on the California Courts website
