The District Court Its First Year of Operation

Record #:
The first six districts assigned either 2-4 judges each began hearing both civil and criminal cases in 1967. Of these judges, some have prior judicial experience, fifteen are lawyers, and two have no previous experience; a stipulation in the Constitution does not require legal training to become a judge. Reflections on the 1967 year show generally favorable conditions in personnel, cost, and efficiency and the next group of counties to switch in December 1968 should experience a smooth transition.
