Judicial Districts

I’ve always wondered why our circuit and chancery districts were not similar.

I believe there are three districts that have identical Circuit and Chancery Court Districts:

  1.  Hinds
  2.  Hancock, Harrison and Stone
  3.  Jackson, George and Greene.

This doesn’t bother me.  I’ve just always wondered why we don’t strive for uniformity and consistency where ever possible.  And, none of the Circuit and Chancery Court Districts have any relation to the Supreme Court or Court of Appeals Districts.
