Report Cites “Serious Problems in Bronx Courts

“The merger of Criminal and Supreme courts in the Bronx has created “serious problems” and “must be re-evaluated” if additional judicial resources are not made available, a report issued yesterday by the New York City Bar concluded. The report recommends that “strong and immediate attempts” be taken to handle a growing backlog in felony cases… “Unless and until it can be demonstrated that merger can be achieved without deleterious effects on the adjudication of felony cases,” the report states, “it must be deemed a failure which should not be extended to other counties.’”
