Chief Justice Leigh Saufley presents her annual State of the Judiciary address today in the State House.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ Maine's top judge will discuss the most challenging issues and status of the state's court system during a speech to a joint gathering of the House and Senate.

Chief Justice Leigh Saufley presents her annual State of the Judiciary address Thursday in the State House.

Court expenses, security and the public's access to counsel are among the topics addressed in the past by Saufley, who heads the Maine Supreme Judicial Court and is the top official in the Judicial Branch of state government.

In her speech last year, Saufley said the court system was acting swiftly to prevent domestic violence by tightening up bail rules for alleged abusers.
