Over the last five years, California courts have been hit hard by state budget cuts. The new state budget restores some funding, but more than 50 courts have already closed and those still open are delivering slower service and charging higher fees. 

As Chris Richard reports, the cuts have hit particularly hard in far flung communities like Blythe, which sits on the border with Arizona.
