County courts better than state average in public satisfaction

Eighty-six percent of the local replies indicated they strongly agreed that they were treated with courtesy and respect by court staff, better than the 71 percent statewide figure.

Also, 82 percent strongly agreed that they were treated with courtesy and respect by court officials. Just 56 percent strongly agreed statewide.
