A subordinate judicial officer may not engage in the private practice of law except to the extent permitted by Judicial Council rules. As used in this section, “subordinate judicial officer” means an officer appointed by the court to perform subordinate judicial duties as authorized by Section 22 of Article VI of the California Constitution.
The legislature occasionally skips outline levels.
(3) A person may apply [...]
(4)(a) A person petitioning for relief [...]
In this example, (3), (4),
and (4)(a) are all outline levels, but
omitted by its authors. It's only implied. This presents an
interesting challenge when laying out the text. We've
decided to display a blank section with this note, in order
to aide readability.
