The primary mission of the 52nd Judicial District is to
provide access to, and justice for, all of the residents of Lebanon
Lebanon County was a one judge Judicial District until
1968. Thirteen years later, our third judgeship was added. Enormous
change has been experienced both in the type and quantity of matters
presented for disposition. For example, in 1997, the most recent year for
which complete statistics were available, the Court disposed of 43% more
criminal cases than in 1991. Further, data indicates the judges disposed
of 150% more cases during that same year than in 1981.
According to Judge Robert J. Eby, Lebanon County was rated
as number one of the Fifth Class Counties and number two for all of the
Counties of the Commonwealth for Statewide Jury Efficiency.
