The Calendar Control Project in Bronx Criminal Court Final Report


This is the 1969 final report of Vera's Calendar Control Project. The goal of the project was to test whether cases in Bronx Criminal Court that would be adjourned on the court date could be identified in advance and adjourned by telephone on consent of both sides, thereby saving unnecessary court appearances on the original date. In addition, the project experimented with other means by which treatment of cases could be expedited and the number of court appearances required of both parties minimized.
