New judges log 80 hours in classroom
All of Mississippi’s newly elected Justice Court judges have passed the mandatory judicial competency exam, the Mississippi Judicial College recently announced. Louise Linzy, justice court judge for the Southern District of Tunica County, was among them.
Forty-five judges completed an 80-hour instructional course. The Mississippi Judicial College conducted two weeks of training Dec. 5-16 in Jackson.
The training concluded with a six-hour, 240-question Minimum Competency Examination administered by the Mississippi Judicial College on Dec. 16. The exam included sections on civil law, criminal law and ethics. Questions covered substantive and procedural matters that come before Justice Court judges. A passing score required answering 70 percent of the questions correctly.
