Court Administration

The Administrative Office of the Fourth District Court- located at the Ada County Courthouse, room 4171- consists of one trial court administrator (TCA), one assistant TCA, one office administrator, and three administrative specialists. The TCA is appointed by the Administrative Director of the Idaho courts and the Administrative District Judge of the Fourth Judicial District.

The TCA’s office oversees all administrative responsibilities of the Fourth Judicial District, including Court Reporting, Drug Court, Family Court Services, Guardianship Monitoring, Interpreter Services, Jury Services, Marshal Services, Mental Health Court, Small Claims Mediation, and Transcripts within Ada County. The TCA is also responsible for personnel administration, facilities management, and technology planning and implementation. It is the administrator’s role to facilitate administrative functions within the district and to develop and carry out policies that enhance court system performance.

The TCA also ensures that the multitude of court departments function effectively as a team. In addition, the TCA must effectively balance any need arising out of non-court-related departments within the courthouse, including efforts with county staff relating to contractors and vendors working on any courthouse project. The TCA also serves as a liaison with city, state, and federal agencies as well as the media and the general public.
