The League of Women Voters will host an event tonight to discuss the details of and reasons for the district courts reorganization. Chief District Judge Sean Delahanty will present an outline of the plans, the League says he will give an overview that will be more easily understood by laypersons.
The changes are the result of an effort to cut down wait times and overcrowding, and Deborah Kent says the event is geared toward providing an explanation for people who are not familiar with how the system works. She says the League of Women Voters will examine the reorganization and invites the public to join.
The last major changes to the court system were in 1978. The announcement of these changes was made on June 1. The changes will be implemented on August 11 of this year.
The meeting will be held at the Lang House, 115 S. Ewing Ave, at 6 pm.
