Monitoring Information: New York documents court performance relevant to time standards by producing manual and computer-generated reports with information compiled at both local and statewide levels.

Reports/summaries with time standards are received by the clerk of court, all judges, the division manager, the local court administrator, the caseflow management/delay reduction unit, the state court administrator, the AOC staff, the chief justice, the trial court administrator, and administrative personnel. The reports/summaries are reviewed on a daily basis.

Case processing time standards reports are published in the annual report and are also available to the public through an open records request.
Notes: New York finds the most helpful measurement of court timeliness to be the % of cases exceeding existing time standards.
