Attorney George indicated that of the total number of cases on the docket, 17 are criminal, while 12 are civil.

George then thanked Resident Circuit Judge Madea Chenoweth for working tirelessly during the August Term of Court.
In remarks earlier, Resident Judge Chenoweth observed that the justice system is not just the Chief Justice, Associate Justices, Judges and lawyers, but also comprises citizens of the country.
She noted that citizens in any country play a vital role in the justice system because it relies on them for expeditious dispensation of justice.
Judge Chenoweth explained that citizens are selected from various communities to serve as jurors in circuit courts to strike a balance in making final determination of cases.
Judge Chenoweth also noted that their selection as jurors is also a civic and patriotic duty and so they must serve the purpose for which they were selected.
