American Bar Association Letter on need to create new federal judgeships (10/29/13)
"The district courts in which the Judicial Conference is recommending additional judgeships currently are laboring under weighted case filings of almost 630 per authorized judgeship, far above the 430 weighted caseload threshold. ... In some jurisdictions, caseloads are dramatically worse: judges of the District of Arizona and the Western District of Texas have caseloads that exceed 700 weighted filings, and judges in three districts – the Eastern District of California, the Eastern District of Texas, and the District of Delaware – labor to dispense timely justice with weighted caseloads of over 1,000 per judge. ... Congress should quickly move to establish new judgeships in the five district courts singled out by the Judicial Conference for immediate relief -- the District of Arizona, the Eastern District of California, the District of Delaware, the Eastern District of Texas, and the Western District of Texas. The astronomically high caseloads under which they struggle are indisputable – and indefensible."
