The National Association of Court Management has awarded Maricopa County Superior Court's Probate Court with the 2013 Justice Achievement Award.
The award recognizes comprehensive reform efforts of judicial officers, administrators and court staff over the last three years, according to a news release from the Superior Court of Arizona.
"It is clear that over the past few years the Maricopa County Probate Court has experienced significant reform and innovation under the able leadership of Probate Presiding Judge Rosa Mroz," said Superior Court Presiding Judge Norman Davis in the release.
"The process of improvement is by its nature perpetual, and the Maricopa County Superior Court has always, and will continue to strive for excellence in providing the public with the best judicial system possible," Davis said.
The Court will accept the award at the NACM Annual Conference on July 15.
The Justice Achievement Award was established in 1988 to recognize outstanding achievement and meritorious projects that enhance the administration of justice, according to the release.
In 2010, Superior Court received a Justice Achievement Award for the re-design of its CASA website.
