97th District Court Judgeship Among Those Slated For Elimination By State

Will the 97th District Court have a judge in the future?

The State Court Administrative Office is calling for the cutting of nine trial court judgeships, and the addition of three others.

Of the courts listed in their report, the district court judgeship serving Houghton, Baraga and Keweenaw County would be among those eliminated.

Michigan Supreme Court chief Justice Robert Young says it’s part of an ongoing effort to have an efficient court system.

The new recommendations are based on an analysis of judicial workloads.

The administrative office says these cuts, combined with cuts in 2011 and 2013, will save nearly $200 million once all of the cuts are fully implemented.

The report states all the reduction in judges should be accomplished by attrition when a judge leaves office or dies.
