Shasta County Superior Courts



Under the supervision of a Court Services Manager or Court Services Supervisor, a Court Services Assistant performs specialized duties in support of Court operations including processing legal documents, performing specialized accounting duties, pursuing and securing payment of receivables and delinquent accounts, preparing minutes of Court proceedings, assisting attorneys and litigants, processing judicial decisions, and other record keeping duties.

The Court Services Assistant is a three level series distinguished primarily by the complexity of work, level of independent judgment, and action and application of technical knowledge.

Court Services Assistant I is the entry level in the series.  A CSA I initially works under close supervision performing a variety of general clerical duties associated with one segment of Court operations while learning to apply specialized court/legal practices and procedures applicable to assigned work unit(s).  As a CSA I develops knowledge and proficiency, a wider variety of duties are assigned and they are allowed to work more independently.  Almost all new or unusual situations are referred to senior staff for assistance.

Court Services Assistant II is the journey level of the series.  A CSA II is expected to perform the full range of specialized clerical duties in support of assigned Court operations and must exercise independent judgment and action within established criteria. New or unusual situations are frequently referred to senior staff.

Court Services Assistant III is the advanced journey level in the series, providing technical expertise to operational service units within the Superior Court and may regularly be assigned some courtroom clerk duties. Incumbents perform the full range of specialized clerical duties and provide technical assistance in the more complex assignments.  A CSA III will exercise considerable independent judgment and action within defined criteria.
