Waller wants statewide county court system
Published: December 20,2013
JACKSON — Mississippi Supreme Court Chief Justice Bill Waller Jr. and the Commission on Children’s Justice are calling for legislation to create a statewide county court system.
Waller said the proposal includes a provision for a uniform youth court system. He said it also would ease the caseload in state circuit courts.
Others joining Waller in the announcement included Adams County Court and Youth Court Judge John N. Hudson and Rankin County Court Judge Thomas Broome.
According to the release on the state judiciary website, 21 individual counties currently have a separate county court. The proposal offered by Waller would create 20 additional county courts by grouping 61 counties into districts comprised of no more than four counties each.
