Chief Justice Wants To Make Kentucky's Courts Easier To Use

Kentucky's Chief Justice says he wants to make Kentucky's court system more transparent and easier to use.

John Minton, who was sworn in to the top spot of the Kentucky Supreme Court in June, set several goals for the state court system during some remarks in Bowling Green this week. He wants to make it simpler for people to represent themselves, form a citizens council that would review the court system, and re-establish a judicial council that would recommend improvements.

    way to go John Minton, lets see how far you get. Come to Perry County and see how long it takes until you are bought off. Then go to LEtcher Co. They are second to us. At least Letcher courts will let you get by without paying your fines. Check out the social service workers also. They are a joke.

Where people put into jail and straved,and abused.Without so much as a conviction.Where the ol'buddy system is alive and well.Pike Co Kentucky home of no fairness,no defence,no hope, no justice.

    I sincerely hope Chief Justice Minton helps change the law and helps people who can't afford an attorney but doesn't qualify for free representation, the economy is in such a shape that it is almost impossible to live even middle to lower class and survive, buy the essentials to live on and keep up and run a vehicle to work and buy food for the family and to employ an attorney just is not in the budget, helps seems to need to come from somewhere for legal representation or access and advice on how to handle your own case if necessary. I sincerely hope Chief Justice gets some legislation to help the people who fall thru the cracks the ones who do not qualify for free representation and the the ones who can't afford it. HELP US! Thank You
