New Year's Report by Chief Justice Roberts Highlights Lack of Funding forJudiciary

At the start of the new year, the Supreme Court releases an annual report.   In today's report, as Chief Justice John Roberts highlights lack of funding for the federal judiciary.  "At the top of my list is a year-end report that must once again dwell on the need to provide adequate funding for the Judiciary."  Here the report is summarized by National Public Radio.

While funding for the judiciary is an issue that does not necessarily relate to judicial selection, the two topics often seem connected in practice.  My own recent publication on judicial under-funding and a private sector alternative is here.   It is called "Is Adjudication a Public Good? 'Overcrowded Courts' and the Private Sector Alternative of Arbitration".
