Today the Three-Judge Court released an update regarding the meet-and-confer process.  The courts agreed to extend the meet-and-confer process to January 10, 2014.  As a result,  the deadline to achieve the ordered reduction in population is extended accordingly, to April 18, 2014.  The extension will provide additional time for the parties involved to determine next steps for California’s criminal justice reforms.  The following statement was released by the CDCR. 
We are encouraged that the court has extended these deadlines and we will continue our efforts both with the court and with our partners in law enforcement and local government to build upon California’s landmark reforms to our criminal justice system.

DEBORAH HOFFMAN, Assistant Secretary, Communications, CDCR
