SDFLA practitioners know that most of our judges push cases to trial.
The median time in our district from the beginning to the end of a criminal case is 5.2 months. (!!) By way of comparison, in SDNY, it's 14.1 months. In EDNY, it's higher: 20.5 months. Also, our median number from indictment to plea is 5 months and 9.7 months for a trial. Now that the district seems to be opening up again, will judges relax these numbers (pretty please!) to be more in line with other districts?
In other news, the Supreme Court is finishing its Term. A big one came out this morning -- No standing for the Republicans to overturn Obamacare... You can follow all of the big cases at SCOTUSblog.
