Workload-effects of speeding up case-settlement

Workload-effects of speeding up case-settlement

Summary

Subject of this memorandum is the additional work to be carried out by the courts following the planned measures  to reduce civil commercial case handling times. A background study was carried out into the number of pending civil commercial cases, and into the effects of competency shifts on the inflow and percentage of default on appearance. This is followed by a prognosis setting out the effect of two specific measures for speeding up the process, namely the term reduction and the restriction on reply and rejoinder. In view of the Courts’ workloads it is also established how many extra cases of appeal the acceleration operation generates.
