Stanislaus Superior Court Overview

The Stanislaus County Superior Court is the 17th largest court statewide. We have 20 Judges, 3 Commissioners, and 1 Mental Health Review Officer. Statewide, there are slightly more than 2000 judicial positions.

We have a $28 million dollar budget and a staff of approximately 275 employees. Our operating budget is State-supported while the Administrative Office of the Courts is responsible for the maintenance and support of facilities. We receive more than 100,000 filings per year.

In January 2001, the court separated from the county due to the passage of SB2140 legislation.  Prior to this legislation, all court staff with the exception of the Judges were county employees.  Following this legislation, employees of the court are considered Trial Court Employees.  This is a historic first statewide and is part of the ongoing changes brought about as part of the unification of the trial courts into one trial court which took effect in July 1998.

This Court and its administrators are actively involved with the local community; with the California Legislature; with other county departments, especially those involved directly with the civil, criminal, and juvenile justice system; and on committees created by the California Judicial Council, the State Administrative Office of The Court and the Conference of Court Executives.


The Stanislaus Superior Court is also involved on a national level with the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) and the National Association of Court Managers (NACM).  


In 2010 our Superior Court Annual Report was brought up to date statistically and with current events that occured throughout the year.
