Ind. Courts - "Bill would bring the total number of trial court types in the state back to 7"

Bill Raftery, of the blog Gavel to Gavel, has an interesting post today on the background of Indiana trial-type courts. In part he writes:

There’s a long a fascinating history to the way in in which Indiana has organized and reorganized its trial courts, including courts that no longer exist (County Courts, Common Pleas, Quarter Sessions, Justice of the Peace) detailed in this 1997 article. The most recent iteration, the end of the state’s County Courts, occurred only recently. Still, with their end Indiana has one of the largest number of court types in the nation with at the present time 6 (Superior, Circuit, Probate, City, Town, and Small Claims Court of Marion County).
