A balanced budget for Sacramento County? Not so fast.

A Sacramento Superior Court judge on Thursday blocked the county’s scheduled cuts to medical programs for the poor, ordering that clinics slated for closure remain open.

The cuts were set to take effect this weekend – the start of the new fiscal year. Cuts to primary care, including the clinics, were projected to save $7.8 million.
