Legal Times investigates the backlog of cases in Washington, D.C.'s domestic-relations court system. The articles finds the "system seems to victimize those who need help the most." Why? The article finds a lack of good communication between lawyers and judges, miserly court administrators, and basic tardiness are some of the main problems plaguing the system. In a previous survey, two of the most common answers for why cases were delayed were that the "judges or commissioners were not on time," or that "the courtroom was locked." Another factor contributing to the backlog was litigants being able to give long, rambling arguments without being limited by the presiding judge.
