Michigan judicial agency wants to add, cut judges
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The agency that oversees Michigan's court system wants to add more judges in Macomb, Oakland and Kent counties while eliminating some judicial posts in Wayne County and elsewhere.
The recommendations based on workload were released today. Any changes require approval by lawmakers.
The State Court Administrative Office recommends four additional Circuit Court judges in Macomb County and two more in Oakland County. In the Grand Rapids area, the agency recommends another Circuit Court judge and a District Court judge.
On the other side of the scale, lawmakers are being asked to cut four judges in Wayne County Circuit Court and one District Court judge each in Berrien, Delta and Saginaw counties. The report also recommends cutting a judge in the District Court that serves Baraga, Houghton and Keweenaw counties.
