2011 Superior Court Time and Motion Study

Data collection took place for the 2011 Superior Court Time and Motion Study during March 2011, with 147 of 205 superior court judges, representing 46 circuits, documenting time on printed or electronic forms.  These 147 judges, along with nine magistrates designated to preside in superior court, submitted 1,562,117 minutes of case and administrative activity data to the AOC.  

    Superior court clerks in circuits with participating judges were asked to complete a summary report of dispositions for the month of March and submit it to the Council of Superior Court Clerks.  The Council compiled data furnished by 126 clerks and forwarded a report totaling 32,742 criminal, general civil, and domestic relations dockets and defendants to the AOC.  To ensure a valid calculation, the AOC removed the judge time recorded in counties for which no disposition data was furnished, and disposition reports for circuits where not all judges recorded time were adjusted proportionally to the number of judges participating.
    Based on demographic factors as well as the non-case related time data submitted by judges, circuits were reclassified from three categories into four and were assigned new judge-year values.
