Los Angeles County Superior Court survived the first of 12 days of self-imposed job furloughs Wednesday. But that didn't mean judges weren't busy. "It was a long day yesterday," said Presiding Judge Charles "Tim" McCoy, who began an arduous, daylong series of interviews with reporters at 3 a.m. The court, which faces an estimated shortfall of almost $138 million during the fiscal year that began on July 1, has taken the unprecedented step of voluntarily furloughing employees on the third Wednesday of each month.
