Just, speedy, and inexpensive? : an evaluation of judicial case management under the Civil Justice Reform Act by James S Kakalik( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Civil Justice Reform Act of 1990 (CJRA) required each federal district court to develop a case management plan to reduce costs and delay. The legislation also created a pilot program to test six principles of case management, and required an independent evaluation to assess their effects. This executive summary provides an overview of the purpose of the CJRA, the basic design of the evaluation, the key findings, and their policy implications. Detailed results appear in three other reports: MR-801-ICJ, which traces the stages in the implementation of the CJRA in the study districts; MR-802-ICJ, which presents the main descriptive and statistical evaluation of how the CJRA case management principles implemented in the study districts affected cost, time to disposition, and participants' satisfaction and views of fairness; and MR-803-ICJ, which describes the results of an evaluation of mediation and neutral evaluation designed to supplement the alternative dispute resolution assessment contained in the main CJRA evaluation
An evaluation of mediation and early neutral evaluation under the Civil Justice Reform Act( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Civil Justice Reform Act of 1990 (CJRA) required each federal district court to develop a case management plan to reduce costs and delay. The legislation also created a pilot program to test six principles of case management, and required an independent evaluation to assess their effects. This report is one of four documents describing the evaluation, which was conducted by RAND's Institute for Civil Justice. The report describes an assessment of the effects of six different alternative dispute resolution (ADR) programs that included mediation and early neutral evaluation. The study found that, once litigation had begun, referral to ADR was not a panacea, nor was it detrimental. Neither time nor costs nor lawyer views of satisfaction or fairness changed significantly as a result of referral to any of these programs; however, lawyers and litigants who participated in the programs liked them. The only statistically significant finding was that cases referred to ADR were more likely to have a monetary outcome. See also MR-800-ICJ, MR-801-ICJ, and MR-802-ICJ
An evaluation of judicial case management under the Civil Justice Reform Act( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Civil Justice Reform Act of 1990 (CJRA) required each federal district court to develop a case management plan to reduce costs and delay. The legislation also created a pilot program to test six principles of case management, and required an independent evaluation to assess their effects. This report is one of four documents describing the evaluation, which was conducted by RAND's Institute for Civil Justice. The report describes the effects of the CJRA case management principles on time to disposition, costs, and participants' satisfaction and views of fairness. The study found that the CJRA's package of case management policies, as implemented, had little effect on any of these outcomes. However, what judges do to manage cases does matter. A package of procedures containing early judicial management, early setting of a trial date, and shorter time to discovery cutoff could reduce time to disposition by 30 percent, with no change in litigation costs, satisfaction, or perceived fairness.

Implementation of the Civil Justice Reform Act in pilot and comparison districts( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Civil Justice Reform Act of 1990 (CJRA) required each federal district court to develop a case management plan to reduce costs and delay. The legislation also created a pilot program to test six principles of case management, and required an independent evaluation to assess their effects. This report is one of four documents describing the evaluation, which was conducted by RAND's Institute for Civil Justice. The report traces the stages in the CJRA implementation: the recommendations of the advisory groups, the plans adopted by the districts, and the plans actually implemented. The study found that all pilot districts complied with the statutory language of the act. But the amount of change varied widely, and in some districts, planned changes were not fully implemented. However, implementing the pilot plans may have heightened the consciousness of judges and lawyers and brought about some important implicit shifts in their approach to case management.

Discovery management : further analysis of the Civil Justice Reform Act evaluation data( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Civil Justice Reform Act of 1990 (CJRA) required that each federal district court develop a case management plan to reduce costs and delay. The legislation also created a pilot program to test six principles of case management and required an independent evaluation to assess their effects. After the main evaluation report was completed, the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules of the Judicial Conference of the United States asked RAND to conduct further analyses of the CJRA evaluation data to see if additional light could be shed on discovery management. The report uses both descriptive tabulations and statistical techniques to assess policy effects. Management policies are evaluated when used in various combinations, such as early management in combination with discovery plans and early scheduling of a trial date. Also analyzed are subsets of cases or lawyers, such as high complexity cases only, high stakes cases only, contingent fee lawyers only, or tort cases only. For each type of case, data include time to disposition, lawyer satisfaction with judicial case management, lawyer views on the fairness of judicial case management, total lawyer work hours per litigant, lawyer work hours on discovery, and the number of discovery motions filed
