Citizen of the Week
The Arkansas Supreme Court ruled that Circuit Judge Kent Crow's order consolidating the two judicial districts of Carroll County into one showed "a plain, manifest, clear and gross abuse of discretion."
Eureka Springs attorney Tim Parker took this case on pro bono, and it can't have been easy challenging a judge and arguing a case in front of the Arkansas Supreme Court. Parker believed the judge's ruling was wrong, and donated time and money to preserve the dual judicial districts that have existed in this county since 1883.
This is not the end of split-county travails, but knowing Tim Parker is watching out for our interests and rights is noteworthy.
