Small Claims Court Report Issued

On May 1, the Marion County Small Claims Court Task Force created by the Indiana Supreme Court issued their findings in an effort to investigate whether litigants in those courts are denied access to justice.  They were also tasked with determining whether the township trustees are controlling the staff and finances of those courts.

As noted by the Indiana Supreme Court, "The documents outline the results of the Task Force's investigation: findings of fact describing serious problems in the management and procedures of the Marion County Small Claims Courts and recommendations to remedy those problems."View Report
