Project Summary for 2002-IJ-CX-K011
The Principal Investigator will be coordinating this project with a consortium of courts (Tribal Court Research and Improvement Consortium) to examine the collateral costs of establishing specialized courts within the State Court System. A number of specialized courts, such as drug courts, community courts, domestic violence courts, and mental health courts are being implemented in jurisdictions with federal support. While a portion of the start-up costs and initial operating costs are being supported through grant funds, the full costs of developing and operating these courts too the court system are not clear. This Consortium will work with its court members and researchers to determine what costs are being absorbed by the court system through either resource reallocation or direct costs to the court. A report of the findings will be prepared.
