Guide for Appraisal and Improvement of Caseflow Management of Civil Cases in U.S. District Courts

This Guide provides the tools for any interested federal judge to make a quick, initial assessment of the status of his or her civil case docket to measure how it compares to his or her colleagues, as well as to courts across the nation, with the goal of improving caseflow management in civil cases in the U.S. District Courts. The Guide also provides the means for a more in depth docket analysis, as well as recommendations for better caseflow management practices.

This Guide builds on two prior IAALS publications, A Roadmap for Reform—Civil Caseflow Management Guidelines and Civil Case Processing in the Federal District Courts—A 21st Century Analysis.
