​Efficiency:  Consolidation and Coordination

​Counties Streamlining Courts

​By sharing judicial resources, cases can be handled more efficiently.  Concurrent jurisdiction plans allow circuit, probate, and district judges in the same judicial circuit to assist each other with cases and specialize in certain case types.  By 2014, courts in 69 counties either had a concurrent jurisdiction plan or were developing one.
