Submitted herein is the sixth annual report produced by the Administrative Office of State Courts.
In 1977, the court took initiatives to better deal with the changing demands placed on the judiciary. Special attention was paid to case scheduling, and efforts were made to reduce the number of cases pending disposition in both trial and appellate courts. Coals have been set putting limits on the time certain types of cases may remain before the court, and the courts are committed to using special efforts and new techniques to meet these goals. These and other developments in the operation and administration of the courts are described in this report.
