Due to the State of California’s $54 billion deficit as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Riverside Superior Court will experience a revenue shortfall in Fiscal Year 2020/2021 of $12 million. The Court has taken actions to reduce this deficit by closing some courthouses, freezing vacant staff positions, reducing operating costs, and implementing some furloughs. These actions alone will not be enough to cover the anticipated shortfall.

- Close Riverside County courthouses one (1) to two (2) Fridays per month;
- Reduce service hours to 8:30 am to 12:00 pm; and/or
- Continue closures of the Corona, Hemet, Moreno Valley and Temecula courthouses until further notice.
Any interested person or entity wishing to comment on these actions must send their comment in writing or electronically no later than 5:00 PM on Monday, October 5, 2020. Comments may be submitted to the following:
