Mohave County court asking for 7th division

.

KINGMAN — The Mohave County Superior Court is seeking a seventh division and is asking the board of supervisors to petition Gov. Jan Brewer to expand the Superior Court in northwest Arizona.

The Daily Minerreports the county is allowed to petition the Governor’s Office for additional superior court judge’s every time the population in the area grows by 30,000 people.

The 2010 Census put Mohave County’s population at 200,186.

A study completed for the court by the National Center for State Courts suggested Mohave County really needed at least 10 judges in order to handle its current caseload.
