Court News

Judge Cooperrider and staff worked on the schedule for the Perry County Free Legal Clinic, which Judge Cooperrider helped start in 2008. The clinic will once again be held in 2020 for the 12th consecutive year. The clinic is held the first Tuesday of each month, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the juvenile courtroom. There will not be a clinic in January, due to staff concerns from the Southeastern Legal Aid, which is a big part of the clinic. The clinic is income-eligible and the person must be from Perry County, or their case is in Perry County.
