Judge cancels court, cites severe health and safety concerns image


UPDATE: According to Marshall County Circuit Clerk Tiffany Griffith court has been canceled due to the discovery of fleas in the District Court room.

According to an order issued earlier this morning by District Judge Jack Telle, all District Court cases in Marshall County have been canceled today.

In the order, Telle cites, "severe health and safety concerns and in consideration of the well-being of the public and building personnel."

Telle advises those with cases on today's docket will be notified of rescheduling and those in custody will be arraigned when a "safe and appropriate venue" can be identified.

Judge Telle did not elaborate within the Order of Cancellation what specific health and safety concerns were creating the need for cancellation. The Tribune-Courier is working to gather more information.
