The judges asked for it. And now Kansas City’s Municipal Court has received its ruling.
The court could become more efficient, serving the public better, if practices were more standardized and courtrooms operated less like silo operations, a creation of each judge’s individualized style, said the report by the National Center for State Courts.
“Of those interviewed, both judges and staff commented on the lack of structure concerning the development and implementation and interpretation of new and existing policies and procedures,” the report said.
