Election 2016Cunningham, TN – On Saturday, July 30th, 2016 19th Judicial District Part IV Circuit Court Judge Jill Bartee Ayers spoke at the 108th annual Lone Oak Picnic put on by the Central Civitan Club.

“Division IV is hearing primarily criminal cases. We had a huge backlog when I took the bench. Been working hard since then just to get cases handled and trying to open up as many days as possible for hearings and trials,” said Ayers.

“It’s primarily criminal work. Judge Goodman who is in Division II, he and I are coordinating and cooperating to try and make sure we serve the needs of the 19th Judicial District,” Ayers stated.

“We are trying to keep crime in check as much as we can through our judicial system. We appreciated all the help that we get when you all come in and serve on juries. Thanks for your support,” said Ayers.
