For the past two weeks, we’ve been reviewing the originating jurisdictions – not the first trial court, but the first authority, whether agency, council or board – for the California Supreme Court’s civil docket between 1994 and 2016.  Today, we’ve reached 2006.

Table 239 reports the data for 2006.  The Los Angeles Superior Court originated fifteen cases.  Sacramento County originated five cases, San Francisco County four and Alameda County three.  The Franchise Tax Board and San Bernardino County originated two cases apiece.  The following jurisdictions originated one case each: the Goleta City Council, the San Francisco Civil Service Commission, the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Kern County, the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, the San Diego Civil Service Commission, San Diego, Sierra and Humboldt counties, the Claremont Police Department, Santa Barbara County, the Board of Trustees of the California State University, Inyo, Shasta and San Luis Obispo counties, the Assessment Appeals Board No. 1 for the County of Los Angeles, the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors, the Tulare County Employees Retirement Association and the State Water Resources Control Board.

We report the data for 2007 in Table 240 below.  Seventeen cases originated in Los Angeles County.  Four began in San Diego County, three in San Francisco, San Bernardino, Sacramento and Orange counties, and two each in Santa Clara County and the Workers Compensation Appeals Board.  One case apiece originated at the National Labor Relations Board, the City of Oakland Public Records Act Monitor, the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training, Contra Costa, Imperial, San Joaquin, Santa Barbara, Kings, Merced, Santa Barbara, Kings, Merced, Shasta, Solano, Riverside and Sutter counties, the Tulare County Council, the Solano County Airport Land Use Commission, the California Department of Motor Vehicles, the California Labor Commissioner, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors and the United States District Court for the Central District of California.

We report the data for 2008 in Table 241 below.  Thirteen cases originated in Los Angeles County.  Eight began in San Diego.  Three started in Sacramento County and two in San Francisco County.  One case each originated in the Los Angeles Police Department, the West Hollywood City Council, the Circuit Courts of Ventura, Alameda, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Joaquin County, the California Department of Fish and Game, the Santa Clara County Open Space Authority, the Workers Compensation Appeals Board, the California Environmental Protection Agency, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and the California Labor Commissioner.
