County government regularly involves disagreements between county commissioners and other county officers. Solutions include arbitration, mediation, recalls, regular elections, and courtroom confrontations. Enough cases go through the courts to suggest a pattern of judicial resolution. In reviewing past decisions, one hopes to understand what the courts offer, how they work, why they decide as they do, and who they favor. At least, one hopes to reduce potential frustration over court battles that might be better resolved elsewhere.
