The Steuben County Court in Bath, is going to be lessening their court case load in the new year. That’s according to the D.A. Brooks Baker, who says newly elected State Supreme Court Judge Jason Cook, is going to be helping out Steuben County Court by coming in and acting as a 4th Acting Steuben County Court Judge. “Judge Cook will be covering a lot of our crimnal cases as well as our civil cases,” Baker tells WLEA News. “Judge Cook has decided to take on 35 to 30 percent of our current load until we get caught up, which may take some time. So I expect that we’ll be very busy in Steuben County Court, starting on January 1,” Baker concluded.
