Authority of Court Commissioners - Study J-651

    Code of Civil Procedure Section 259 governs the authority of a court commissioner. The statute includes a number of problematic provisions. The Commission is recommending corrective legislation for the 2004 legislative session to (1) eliminate obsolete references to notarial functions of a court commissioner and (2) conform the statutory standard for service as a temporary judge to the constitutional standard.
