Additional judgeship requested for Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A local delegation will be introducing legislation to the Georgia General Assembly to create an additional judgeship for the Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit.

Superior Court Judge John Allen addressed council members with the resolution Tuesday morning, saying the judgeship was needed because of an increasing caseload.

Judge Allen believes the new position will be approved by state authorities, but he says it is about a two to four year process.
