SACRAMENTO — Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye will ask for an additional $1.1 billion in state funding for California’s judiciary over the next three years at a public event scheduled Tuesday in the state capital.

The so-called Blueprint for Access to Justice seeks almost $875 million “to fully fund” existing trial court caseloads, according to a copy obtained by The Recorder. It also calls for an end to the 1 percent cap on trial court reserves as well as money for at least 50 new superior court judgeships and two new justices on the Fourth District Court of Appeal.
