Frank Farmer wants to insure that Taxpayers' resources are used in the most efficient way possible when it comes to administering justice in Hinds County. While our County Courts operate relatively free from back-log, our Circuit and Chancery Courts do not. Thankfully, the Mississippi Code provides a mechanism, seldom used, that allows a County Court Judge to accept case assignments from the Circuit and Chancery Courts. Frank Farmer's vision for the County Courts is to more fully utilize the provisions provided by the Legislature so that the court dockets in this county move more efficiently.
