Of course, Los Angeles County continued to dominate between 2000 and 2009, with 86.62% of the population among counties that produced Supreme Court cases. Ventura County was 7.26%, Santa Barbara was 3.74% and San Luis Obispo was 2.38%.
The case distribution was even more lopsided – Los Angeles County sent 164 cases to the Supreme Court’s civil docket. Santa Barbara had seven, San Luis Obispo accounted for three and Ventura County had two.
