Civil Justice Reform Act Reports now free online

The Civil Justice Reform Act of 1990 “requires the Director of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts … to prepare a semiannual report showing, by U.S. district judge and magistrate judge, all motions pending more than six months, all bench trials submitted more than six months, all bankruptcy appeals pending more than six months, all Social Security appeal cases pending more than six months, and all civil cases pending more than three years.”   In 2009, the Federal judges voted to post the reports online for free, and they are now available on USCourts.gov.   Older reports are available through the Pacer Case Locator for about $25 a pop.  I added both resources to the “Biographical Information” section of the Judges entry.
