SU researchers develop tool to track the performance of federal-court judges
By Eric Reinhardt

Researchers at Syracuse University (SU) have developed a data tool that provides information on the performance of more than 900 federal district-court judges. The data tool, developed by SU's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) officially launched Oct. 14. TRAC announced the advancement in a news release distributed the same day. With the new tool, the public can learn which judges handle the most civil-court cases, and how long it takes for judges to close those cases, says Gregory Munno, assistant research professor for TRAC. "What's the composition of those cases? How long, on average, does it take them to close each type of case? How many cases have they closed? How does all that compare to other judges in the country?" he added. Munno spoke with the Business Journal News Network on Oct. 17.
