Further cuts to the budget of our Courts are not acceptable. Justice Minton notes that we would have to close the Courts for three (3) weeks a year to make Gov. Bevin’s budget work. This is completely unacceptable. Imagine being unable to get before a Judge when you need to protect yourself or your family. These are essential services. It is unthinkable that our Governor would do this to us. Please read the article ( http://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/politics/ky-legislature/2016/02/23/chief-justice-bevin-cuts-would-close-courts/80802250 ), closely watch this situation, contact your elected representatives and insist that our Courts be funded to serve us and our familes.
