Judges Wish to Condemn Court Bureaucracy with Death by 1,000 Cuts
|Get those things off my desk, courthouse bureaucratic lackey|
- In the past 10 years, the staff of the AOC has grown from less than 300 to more than 1,100. As local courts have cut staff, the AOC has been completely held harmless from those same cuts by hiring "temporary" employees and refusing to impose a real hiring freeze.
- Their growth appears to be unlimited based on the addition of more and more functions that they can usurp from others.
- The (courts administrative office) has grown so much and now employs so many that judges legitimately question the 'bang for the buck' return,
- The AOC operates with unchecked authority and no ceiling on its own bureaucracy
- The AOC is too large. The AOC is bloated. There are too many staffers based on the number of judicial officers that they are supposed to serve.
If what they say is true, order in the court may entail firing many court staffers.
