Judges Make a Move in Montgomery County

It's time to pack it up and move. Judges in the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas were realigned to allow for the judges to hear a wider variety of cases.

According to an article in the Pottstown Mercury, the judges make the change every three years.

"A spokeswoman for President Judge William J. Furber Jr. said that it is a normal sequence of events for the judges to rotate roles," said the article.

The article says the changes are done "in an effort to broaden the scope of the law each hears in various arms of the court."
