Judicial Transparency


During FY 2014, The Commissioners Court directed The Information Technology Department and the County Auditors Office to create a Judicial Management Report to assist the Criminal County Courts and Criminal District Courts in gauging the efficiency and effectiveness of their operational processes. The Judicial Management Report incorporates elements of the "Courtools" model designed by the National Center for State Courts, as well as work that has been done in other Texas counties to measure court system statistics and costs. The report captures key management operational effectiveness and cost statistics.

This report focuses on the following six measures and shows how the individual courts performed relative to each other and against a court-wide average.
