Award of $1 million will address court case backlog in Dawson, Hall counties
Dawson County Government Center
Hall County’s Court Administrator Jason Stephenson said court officials are hoping to set a “fast pace” for 2022 to fix its backlog of cases, especially with an additional $1 million in funding from the American Rescue Plan Act. The Judicial Council of Georgia announced the awards Dec. 22 as part of the $110 million allocated by Gov. Brian Kemp to address the court backlog created by the COVID-19 pandemic. The council said 26 judicial circuits, including Hall and Dawson counties’ Northeastern Judicial Circuit, received nearly $25 million in total funding.
