Employee of the Month

Fist Bump!
Congrats to Jake and Jamie- two clerks at our San Tan Justice Court, who *each* earned CRAFT Awards recently.
That's our version of "Employee of the Month".
Co-workers nominated Jamie for her "go-getter" attitude, and Jake for always helping his team and never hesitating to take charge when needed.
They each received a personalized thermal mug, a special lapel pin, and an extra day off work to thank them for their excellence.
We LOVE being able to crow about our great court staffers!

ASU Encampment Charges "Scratched"

71 defendants had their cases "scratched" on Tuesday, May 14th.

They were camped out at a rally at Arizona State University a few weekends earlier in support of Palestine, but were arrested for not leaving the site when ASU police tried to enforce the school’s curfew.

All were cited for trespassing, but when it came time for their court arraignments, ASU Police had not submitted any charges.

Judge Tyler Kissell then went on the record with each defendant to "scratch" their cases, which is similar to being dismissed. 

Those charges may still be filed within 12 months of the arrest.
