Court Watch NOLA is proud to release its 2013 Report today. This Report is Court Watch NOLA’s most detailed yet, exploring the state of New Orleans’ Criminal District Court, showcasing the observations of the more than 100 volunteers from all walks of life who watched court for us last year, and making best practices-based recommendations for how to make the criminal justice system more efficient, transparent, and accountable.
Court Watch NOLA volunteers observed significant progress at Tulane and Broad in 2013, seeing fewer and shorter delays than in previous years. The Court also made strides towards greater transparency. And Court Watch NOLA itself recorded a huge milestone, making – after only six years in existence – our 15,000th volunteer observation! Check out the Report and look for us in the news over the coming days:
