Court Leadership and Caseflow Management – the Practice of Case Calendaring, Assignment, and Events
Attached is the lastest posting, #4 in the series, on court leadership and the caseflow practices. The initial case assignment, followed by scheduling it on the calendar or docket – and – making best use of court events all contribute toward successful and more efficient caseflow outcomes.
This posting provides best practices that constitute paying attention to assignment, calendaring, and events. Three examples will be provided from actual courts to illustrate practices used. I hope these are helpful and informative. Courts that have fully managed calendaring and case assignment have a head start on positioning cases for movement to final court orders.
Consider your court practices and please share any lessons you have learned on this caseflow practice.
