From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Judicial Council of California is the rule-making arm of the California court system.[1] It was created by an amendment to article VI of the California Constitution in 1926.[2] In accordance with the California Constitution and under the leadership of the Chief Justice of California Supreme Court, the council is responsible for ensuring the "consistent, independent, impartial, and accessible administration of justice". The Judicial Council's staff agency, the Administrative Office of the Courts, is responsible for implementing council policies.[3]

One of the Judicial Council's most well-known responsibilities is promulgating a huge number of standard court forms for use in California judicial proceedings. Among those forms is Form TR-130, the standard "Notice to Appear" form used by practically all California law enforcement agencies to write traffic citations.[4]
