SAN FRANCISCO—The Commission on the Future of California’s Court System will hold a public comment session Dec. 8 in San Francisco to seek input on making the court system more efficient and effective.

The session will focus on concepts related to judicial resources, fines and fees, and traffic infractions. Written comment is also invited.

The Dec. 8 public comment session will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the Malcolm M. Lucas Board Room of the Ronald M. George State Office Complex in San Francisco.

Additional public comment sessions are planned for January to obtain input on more of the commission’s proposals.
