Court reform is a growing national priority. The overwhelming number of litigants populating American courtrooms today has placed a serious burden upon judicial institutions to produce well-thought, reasoned decisions in light of a rapidly increasing caseload. This caseload growth has restricted judges from fully effectuating their duties. Consequently, efforts to accommodate the growing demand for judicial services reflect a deviation from the traditional role and responsibilities of the American judge. For the United states judicial system, such a departure from tradition has dangerous and potentially irreversible implications. Immediate action must be taken to prevent any serious ramifications from arising.
