Kern County judges have narrowly voted to combine their two courts, ending the county's battle as the last holdout in California for a dual-court system. Under increasing state pressure, Superior Court judges voted 8 to 7 to replace the Municipal and Superior courts with a single entity. Those judges defeated an earlier merger proposal. The vote among Municipal Court judges stood at 13 to 1 for the merger Monday night.

A Kern County judge has abruptly halted a $335-million prison project in Delano, ruling that the state Department of Corrections must reconsider the potential environmental impact. The decision, issued last week by Kern County Superior Court Judge Roger Randall, requires the state to reopen issues ranging from water use to effects on the financially strapped city's infrastructure. Delano officials, who have lobbied for the 5,160-bed, maximum-security project, were disappointed.

In some jobs, showing up is a small part of the task. In lawyer Peter Wodinsky's case, showing up is the job itself. Wodinsky makes court appearances. That's it. Nothing else. When attorneys from other firms can't be two places at once or don't want to be bothered seeking a postponement in a case, they hire firms such as Wodinsky's. With as little as an hour's notice, so-called appearance counsels parachute into courtrooms up and down the state.
