The Supreme Court described the duties of the Probate Judge well in Comer v. Ross as "an official charged with the performance of duties judicial, ministerial, and clerical. Not by his or her title, but only by his acts, can the exact capacity in which the Judge appears ever be known upon any occasion." In Greene County, the Probate Judge presides not only over probate and traffic matters, but is also the Chief Magistrate Judge, and Vital Records Custodian.
