SUPERIOR COURT ESTABLISHES BENCH-BAR PROGRAM

Superior Court President Judge James T. Vaughn, Jr. recently implemented Administrative Directive 2011‐5 establishing the Superior Court Bench‐Bar Program. The program provides for two volunteer liaison positions in each county, one of which will act in civil cases and the other in criminal cases. The liaisons serve at the pleasure of the Superior Court and act as intermediaries between Superior Court practitioners and the Resident Judge or appointed Liaison Judge for each county. Practitioners' communications with the liaisons are confidential unless otherwise agreed.
