The project seeks to examine the causes of delay in civil justice cases prosecuted in state courts. Prior research in this area has attributed delay to local conditions specific to the places where the trials are held. In this study, data about county characteristics are included to test that hypothesis. Further, specific aspects of court cases and county characteristics are examined to build a model that estimates the disposition time of civil cases.
