The Arizona Appellate Courts seek your input in assessing whether the National Model Time Standards for State Appellate Courts should be adopted by Arizona.
Chief Justice Scott Bales established the Committee on Arizona Appellate Case Processing Standards, which is chaired by Justice Ann A. Scott Timmer. The committee is charged with evaluating the national standards and developing and recommending case processing standards for the Arizona Supreme Court and both divisions of the Arizona Court of Appeals. The national standards are presented here as a starting point for this evaluation.
