Even though a Cochise County judge is still weighing whether a residential program for troubled minors should remain open after state health officials decided to shut it down, the attorneys representing the facility are requesting a jury trial.

Attorney Chris Russell, one of two lawyers representing Mary’s Mission and Developmental Center, a facility that houses troubled youths between the ages of 11 and 17, is asking Cochise County Superior Judge David Thorn for a jury trial following a decision by the Arizona Department of Health Services to shutter the center’s boys facility in Sierra Vista and the girls residence in Hereford earlier this year.
