Court Reform 15 Years in the Making

Record #:
In December 1970, a project of court reform that has taken fifteen years to complete will be fully implemented. For example, in the seventeen Piedmont and western counties that lie within six judicial districts, there will no longer be recorders courts, mayor's courts, justice of the peace courts, or other similar types. Six District Courts will replace them, each with uniform rules of procedure, court costs, and other standardized methods of dispensing justice.
