Shelby County Juvenile Court Judge Dan Michael was the guest speaker at this week’s Rotary Club luncheon. Judge Michael outlined the structure and responsibilities of the court, which handles 50-70,000 cases each year ranging from child support, child abuse/foster care, child custody and visitation, as well as delinquency cases. The mission of the court is to make a positive difference in communities, with families and with children.
