ACTION PLAN FOR JUSTICE COURTS ANNOUNCED

Steps will be taken by the fall to improve the operations of the state’s locally funded and staffed town and village justice courts, with particular focus on issues relating to fiscal management. An action plan, announced June 19, will be developed by OCA Administrative Director Lawrence Marks and Chief of Operations Ron Younkins with the assistance of an advisory group of town and village court justices and several OCA and justice court officials. An audit of 32 justice courts, released in May by the state comptroller’s office, revealed money had been mishandled in 11 of the 32 courts audited. While most instances reflected poor record-keeping or financial management, in one instance a court clerk pleaded guilty in connection with missing village funds.
