    This sounds like a power dispute on the part of the magistrate judge. If he is interested in saving money, I'll eat my hat. Besides, traffic courts are usually the cash cow for court systems, and ordinary citizens with traffic tickets do not want to be there all day. Sounds like the Cobb traffic judges are acting responsibly with any spare time they have. That's more than you can say about most judges.
