Chief justice to update lawmakers on judiciary

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Chief Justice John D. Minton Jr. is scheduled to address lawmakers on the state of the judiciary next week in Hopkinsville, hometown of House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Tilley.

Minton will speak to the Interim Joint Judiciary Committee at 10 a.m. CDT next Friday in the Christian County Justice Center.

Minton said changing demographics, budget woes and technological advances are forever altering how courtrooms operate and are placing new demands on judges and other personnel.

In his remarks, Minton is expected to brief lawmakers on how the judicial system is adapting to these changes.

As chief justice, Minton oversees the state's entire judicial system.
