Dade Pleas

Judge House will be taking the final pleas on Thursday, April 17th at 9:00 am.  After that, there will be no further pleas taken.  There are only a few remaining cases on the Criminal Jury Trial list. All cases will be sounded for trial Monday, April 21st.


The week of the 21st of April has several scenarios involving the availability or non-availability of Judges.  The trial in Ringgold could spill over to the 21st so if it does, there will be one Judge riding the Circuit and one Judge holding criminal jury trials in Dade County.  This will probably not unfold until Friday afternoon. Please plan accordingly.

Dade Criminal Jury Trials

The Short List on the Dade County page shows the remaining felony and misdemeanor jury trials remaining for the week of April 21st. All cases not specifically continued by the presiding judge (Judge House) should be ready for trial that Monday.

Prayers For Gene Lowery

Many of you know that Probate Judge Gene Lowery from Catoosa County has cancer. We are asking for prayers for him and his family during this extremely difficult time.

Change To April And June Calendar

Judge Van Pelt will be riding Circuit solo the week of April 21st. 

We added two dates for Walker Civil Non-Jury dates; June 23rd and December 9th.

When To Print A New Calendar

When I make updates to the calendar, I promise the date to the left will change.  Most of the time these changes are small and do not require a new printed calendar.  If I DO change the calendar to the point it requires you to reprint a month, I will notify you here under the News banner.  I'm just that kind of guy.
