Ind. Courts - Newton County: "Legal fees mount as mandate stalls"

That is the headline to this snippet from a story by Cindy Brandenburg in the $$$ Newton County Enterprise. Newton County is an area of the state the ILB can no longer follow re court and government news because of a paywall. The snippet:

Newton County Superior Court Judge Daniel J. Molter is still waiting for resolution on his amended order for the mandate of funds, filed Feb. 25, against the county council.

Molter’s original order called for the council to increase the pay of his court administrator to match that of the circuit court’s administrator. When the council didn’t immediately rectify the discrepancy at his request, Molter then filed the amended order to compensate his administrator for back pay to the time when the circuit court administrator’s pay was raised in 2010. He has also mandated a pay increase to reflect seniority in years of service.

Newton County has two judges.
