Recommendation #39 To: Superior Court of California, County of Marin

The Marin Superior Court should make certain that for future complaints it may receive, the court follows the steps stated in its process for registering complaints about evaluators.

1-Year Agency Response

The Marin Superior Court developed an evaluator complaint tracking form and stated that its human resources manager will complete the form while overseeing the investigation of the complaint, attach the form to the written complaint along with the evaluator’s written response and the written response from the other party if one is provided, and retain the form in the FCS complaint file for private evaluators.
