Fast Track Study
Apr 09, 2019
Since 2009, Judge Timothy D. DeGiusti has offered litigants in his civil cases the option of choosing a “Fast Track” procedure. Cases on the “Fast Track” are governed by streamlined pretrial and trial procedures and receive a firm trial date within approximately 180 days. In conjunction with national researchers, Professor Steven Gensler (OU College of Law) is conducting a survey of lawyers who appeared in civil cases assigned to Judge DeGiusti that terminated between 2016-2018. The purpose of the survey is to gain insights into how lawyers view mechanisms that let the parties opt for a smaller and faster litigation process. Counsel will be contacted by e-mail and invited to participate through a link to an online survey program. If you have any questions about the program, please contact Professor Gensler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
