Ind. Courts - "87 U.S. Chief Judges Appeal to Congress for Funding Help"

From the U.S. Courts website:

Describing themselves as "the boots on the ground in our nation's federal trial courts," 87 chief U.S. District judges have sent a letter to Congressional leaders (pdf) stating that reduced funding and sequestration have "...forced us to slash our operations to the bone, and we believe that our constitutional duties, public safety, and the quality of the justice system will be profoundly compromised by any further cuts."
Included among the signatories are Philip P. Simon, Chief Judge, Northern District of Indiana, and Richard L. Young Chief Judge, Southern District of Indiana.
