Monitoring Information: Age of active pending, time to disposition and clearance rate measures are published each quarter in a graphical format and made available to all judges and management teams. This information is also published to the courts public web page.

Statewide case management systems allow judges to see how long their cases are taking to process in relation to the district or statewide average. The data system may be used by presiding judges and court executives to compare workloads between judges and make adjustments accordingly.
Notes:

The Utah State Courts (all eight districts) conduct periodic case management/delay reduction workshops focused on improving case processing times.


Although the Utah State Courts have not formally adopted a specific set of time standards, they have gone to great lengths to reduce delay and to develop timeliness and responsiveness as core values among judiciary and staff.
