Idaho’s County Court System – 03/16/16
Under the Idaho Constitution, Idaho’s court system is unified under the supervision of the Idaho Supreme Court. Under the framework established by the Idaho Legislature, however, both the State and the Counties fund the trial courts. This hybrid model presents complexities and opportunities for increased collaboration among the counties and the courts. Senior Judge Barry Wood, interim Deputy Administrative Director of the Courts, and Andrea Patterson, HR Director for the Idaho Courts, will describe the Idaho courts’ framework in more detail, including the areas that have been particularly challenging over the years as well as any relevant legislative updates.
