WILL JUDICIAL REDISTRICTING BE CONSIDERED IN 2014 by Legislature?

We have no answer to this question, but we have heard speculation that this issue is being talked about by legislators.
It is easy for anyone to access the Supreme Court statistics site to determine and compare caseloads of all 120 Kentucky counties. These statistics are for 2012.

We have found for example that the Judicial Circuit for Carroll / Owen / Grant counties show that the Circuit Court case load is:
Carroll 399 Owen 297 Grant 750 – total 1,446
There is some talk in favor of making Grant County its own judicial district, and combining Carroll /Owen/Gallatin/ and Trimble counties. If this was done it would ease the case loads of Oldham County and Boone County.
The combined case load for Carroll /Owen/Gallatin/ and Trimble counties would be 1,144 cases.
Grant County would have 750 cases if left by itself.
Boone County currently has a case load of 2,527
Oldham County has a case load of 853
