Maricopa/Stanfield Justice Court may have a new name by the beginning of next year.
Wednesday, Pinal County Board of Supervisors is set to approve renaming four of the six justice courts to comply with a 2017 redistricting plan. That included the creation of the JP1 district in the San Tan area.
The recommended new name for Maricopa/Stanfield (JP4) is Western Pinal County Justice Court. The name would take effect Jan. 1.
The San Tan court’s recommended new name is Pioneer Justice Court. JP2 will remain Casa Grande Justice Court. JP3 over Florence, Eloy and Coolidge will be Central Pinal Justice Court. JP5 over Superior, Mammoth, Kearny and Oracle will be Copper Corridor Justice Court though originally suggested as Prospector Justice Court. JP6 will remain Apache Junction Justice Court.
The names were proposed by the Judicial Redistricting Committee and sent to the Facilities Review Committee.
