Ind. Courts - More on: Here is the final language of a bill to remake the Marion County small claims courts

Updating this ILB post from early this morning, a story just came out from another legal publication that reports CCR on SB 523 has now been adopted in both houses, and that the bill:

...proposes modest reforms of the nine township small claims courts in Marion County, a far cry from recommendations of multiple judicial studies to restructure the courts.
The story overlooks the facts that the bill raises the nine small claims judges' salaries, makes them full time positions, turns the courts into courts of records, and in my opinion will make it virtually impossible to integrate them into the county court system in the future.
