BESSEMER — The Gogebic County Courthouse is the first courthouse in the U.P. to offer self-help computer stations that facilitate free legal aid to any citizen wishing to use them.
That news was part of a report shared last week by Judge Michael Pope of the 32nd Circuit Court.
He was addressing members of the Gogebic County Board of Commissioners during their Nov. 8 meeting.
“We’re the second self-help center in the Upper Peninsula,” said Pope, explaining that Marquette County offers a similar system, albeit outside of its courthouse.
