Posted 4:42 PM 5/22/2012 : Local judge discusses her 'Contract for Civility'
TUCSON - There isn't a neighborhood in Tucson immune from some kind of dispute, whether you're sick of your neighbors not mowing their lawn or you're tired of their animals going on yours.
While neighborly spats seem to just part of life, more of them are ending up in the courtroom.
A local judge is trying to change that. Pima County Justice Court Judge Anne Segal stopped by the News 4 Tucson Studios today to explain her "Contract for Civility."
It is currently being used in her courtroom as a strategy to address conflicts between opposing parties. With an estimated 85 percent success rate, Judge Segal believes her Contract for Civility can replace typical injunctions in cases where two warring parties need interventions, not legal actions, and she discussed it with us this afternoon.
