Caseloads up in Southwest District Court
Caseloads in the Southwest District Court increased 9.1 percent from 2010 to 2011 and those working in the system say they are trying to keep up.
Judge William Herauf said it's taking people longer to get through the court system because of the jump.
"The attorneys around this area are just overrun with work," Herauf said. "Trying to get them to be able to get into court, unfortunately it requires continuances and that stretches everything out."
