A part of budget cuts in the state Judicial Branch, the Danbury Juvenile Court was closed.  That means children and families have to have their cases heard in Bridgeport or Waterbury.  Retiring state Representative Cecilia Buck-taylor, an attorney, told The Newstimes that the closure is not in the best interest of these children, who need something stable and local.  She cited a transportation concern of people getting to Bridgeport if they don't have a car, and the time out of school or work that juveniles will have to take in order to make their court appearances.
