Vallejo, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
At the end of February, Norbert Frost, a lawyer based in Solano County, was chosen to speak at the Mechanics Bank Third Wednesdays program. The Third Wednesdays program brings together leaders in the community to discuss issues facing local business owners and investors.
During the program, Frost spoke about California budget cuts and judges battling judges and what those two things mean for businesses and consumers in the community. As an active member of the community, Frost is well known for his sound advice and expertise.
In his presentation, he discussed the latest statistics for the California budget cuts, which totaled $1.1 billion from the state courts budget. For the Napa County courts budget, there were 12 staff furlough days required, a hiring freeze and layoffs. For the Solano County courts, there was over 20 percent reduction in staff and the clerk’s offices now close at 2 p.m. daily. These cuts inevitably result in delays in any court processes for business owners in the community.
Frost has advice for businesses and what they can do to be proactive about the problems these budget cuts raise. Know who you are doing business with, if they have a poor credit history or a litigation history. He advises businesses to determine whether they can file their claims in another state or in federal court where there were no budget cuts. Business could also opt out of court system processes by privately mediating and/or arbitrating their disputes. Be aware that persons who owe money and may be sued may prefer to stay in the California court system to use the delays to their advantage.
