Eastern Adams County's Only Independent Voice Since 1887

Juvenile court cases move to Othello

RITZVILLE — For the past decade, the courthouse has been the site of all Adams County Superior Court cases, including adult and juvenile dockets.

Newly appointed Superior Court Judge Peter Palubicki is changing that.

“We will be holding once-a-month dockets in Othello,” he said. “Juvenile cases will be heard at 10 a.m.; truancy cases, at 11 a.m.; civil cases, at 1 p.m.”

Dockets will be scheduled for the first Thursday of every month in the Othello courtroom of Adams County District Court Judge Carolyn Benzel.

Why the change?

To begin, most juvenile cases in the county involve Othello youth.
