As you know, superior court judges are both county officers and state officers. As you also know, we regard ourselves primarily in the light of county officers. We are elected by the county or counties within our district. The Bar and the judges in many counties know each other well, not only in business, but socially. Many times we meet and make our own arrangement of the work load for convenience in the administration of justice on a county level. We often make our own rules of procedure, which probably vary somewhat from the printed rules. We do this by agreement.
