Recently, the Cleveland Bar Association created a committee of lawyers and laymen to study the problem of delays in our court system objectively and to make recommendations, both interim and permanent in character, aimed at reaching an eventual solution. Such a study must determine first what the extent of the delay in litigation is - the number of months elapsing between the filing of a case and its adjudication. Second, what the goal is - the number of months which properly should elapse. Third, why litigation is delayed beyond a reasonable time. Fourth, what can be done immediately and over a period of time in order to correct these conditions and make it possible to have cases tried within a proper period.
