    Make sense. Fewer people living in the outports and more easy to get around now. No need to keep all these little court houses with a judge travelling by boat anywhere. It is a matter of reality, not government interference.

    What makes the cuts to Circuit Courts more shocking is that Darin King is using the lame "Judicial Independence" excuse for applying these cuts. Obviously, this "Kangaroo Justice Minister" doesn't know what the concept of "Judicial Independence" means. "Judicial Independence" states that judges can make decisions without government interference, but this principle doesn't apply to physical courts and court houses. In other words, while government cannot interfere with a judge's decision, they do have a say in where to build or maintain courts and court houses, not unelected Judges and Chief Justices. Darin King, the next time you use "Judicial Independence" as an excuse for closing Circuit Courts, do some homework so you can learn what this term means.
