HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s judicial branch says it has notified 61 temporary court clerks and temporary court monitors they be losing their jobs next month.

The branch released a letter Friday from Chief Court Administrator Patrick L. Carroll that was sent to the workers Thursday. The 61 employees are assigned to courthouses across Connecticut. The largest number, 14, are working in the Hartford courts.

The layoffs are effective at the close of business on June 22.

In his letter, Carroll says the latest announced job cuts bring the total number of staff reductions to 300.

Carroll says the revised $19.7 billion state budget that cleared the General Assembly last week cuts $77 million from the branch, a figure that includes a $35 million cut in personal services. Additional staff reductions may be announced.
