2018 Q2 - Time to Disposition - Justice Court

Time to Disposition - Justice Court - all

¹ In January 2013, the Utah Judicial Council adopted time to disposition guidelines suggesting 95% of case dispositions meet the established time goal.

² Dispositions are counted on cases filed after July 1, 2011 when justice court conversion to the Court Records Information System (CORIS) was completed.

Time to Disposition

What it is: Time to Disposition is the courts' current assessment of how long it should take to resolve most court cases. Time to disposition focuses on resolved cases rather than cases in progress.

How it is Measured: Time to Disposition is calculated as the percentage of cases disposed within the time standard set for each case type by the Utah Judicial Council.

Why it is important: Time to disposition allows a district to compare its timeliness to established guidelines.
