A committee was established by the Conference of Chief Justices with the goal of finding ways to improve the cost and efficiency of the civil justice system. In this report from On the Road, host Laurence Colletti interviews members of that committee including Judge Bailey, Dean Lieberman, Chief Justice Balmer, and Chief Justice Jefferson. Together, they discuss their report which details 13 ways state court systems can improve civil cases. These recommendations range from curbing excessive discovery to simply using time effectively.
