Steps Taken to Address Tough Economic Times
Staffing Levels and Operating Expenses: Over the past four years, the number of judges and trial court and central office staff and the amount spent on operating expenses has remained the same. In the coming year, the number of judges and staff and the amount spent on operating expenses will continue to remain the same.
Efficiency Measures: Courts and Clerks (who are independently elected constitutional officers) are working collaboratively to establish a single statewide e-filing portal for all courts and all case types and additionally are implementing judge viewer systems that provide for a paperless courtroom. This initiative is expected to produce savings for filers and clerks’ offices as well as creating significant improvements in efficiencies in the disposition of cases.
