Code of Judicial Administration – Comment Period Closed September 11, 2021
CJA01-0303. Internal procedures and organization. Amend. An amendment to CJA Rule 1-303 was approved by the Judicial Council to allow for reports from the Boards twice each year rather than quarterly.
I oppose this proposed rule revision.
This proposed revision strikes me as a bow to complacency and an attempt to reduce accountability and useful data (especially unflattering data and data that exposes failures and defects). Moreover, reducing the number of reporting periods from 4 to 2 decreases accountability, the quantity and timeliness of data, and thus decreases the quality, evidentiary value, and utility of the reports.
