Text of New Court Management Report

We've added the Report of the Court Management Advisory Board to our collection of reports at Mass. Law About the Court System. According to the press release, "The Massachusetts Court Management Advisory Board (CMAB) today called upon the Governor’s office and the state Legislature to enact broad changes to the Administrative structure of the state’s Judiciary, focusing primarily on the Trial Courts and its seven departments.   Citing the “absence of a comprehensive, professionalized, administrative and leadership structure that would enable the Judiciary to full and effectively manage itself," the CMAB recommends legislative changes to several statutes within the court system, including the hiring and tenure practices within the state’s Probation Department."
