Chief Justice Roberts Comments on the State of the Federal Judiciary

2 Jan

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote this week in his 2013 year-end report on the state of the federal judiciary that the budget cuts that went into effect in March reduced judiciary funding by 5 percent, or nearly $350 million. The Chief Justice said that these reductions have created widespread delays in civil and bankruptcy cases and over time these delays will give rise to “commercial uncertainty, lost opportunities and unvindicated rights.”

The full story can be read in the New York Times online.
