Court Receives National Recognition

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - Judge Sheila Kolar's courtroom is gaining national attention from the National Drug Court Institute.

Carolyn Hardin, Senior Director of NDCI, presented Judge Kolar and her staff with a plaque recognizing them as one of the ten Mentor Courts nationally.

Being a mentor court means courts from around the country come view your courtroom to see how you do things. They then take back what they've learned and apply it to their court.

Judge Kolar says this recognition is a win win for the community. Because they are expected to be the best, it keeps them on their toes and gives the people of Billings the best court experience possible.

Recertification to be a mentor court occurs every three years. 2016 will be the year NDCI comes back to review Judge Kolar's courtroom.
