​Marion County Small Claims Task Force Report

​In January 2012, the Indiana Supreme Court created the Marion County Small Claims Task Force to investigate whether litigants in those courts are denied access to justice that is provided to small claims litigants in Indiana's other 91 counties and whether the township trustees exert control over the courts' financial and personnel matters in a manner that threatens judicial independence.

The links below provide detailed documents that outline the results of the Task Force's investigation, findings of fact describing serious problems in the management and procedures of the Marion County Small Claims Courts and recommendations to remedy these problems.
