Mono County Superior Court begs for funds
November 6, 2015, Mike Bodine, The Sheet
A stunning example of classic bureaucracy in action is happening at the Mono County Superior Courthouse in Mammoth. The court had to ask for money from the state after the state took all the court’s money away to balance the state budget. Mono Courts were asking for the $49, 000; $33,000 it had already contributed to a communal state court coffer plus an additional $16,000. The coffer is stuffed with nearly $38 million, but Mono almost didn’t get what it needed, because courts deal with precedent and if Mono got the money, every court with a splinter would come running for tweezers.
