The report of the Center's second evaluation of the Second Circuit court of appeals' Civil Appeals Management Plan (CAMP), which in contrast to the first evaluation (see An Evaluation of the Civil Appeals Management Plan), reveals that CAMP was producing the benefits expected of it. In addition to reducing average disposition time, CAMP resulted in settlement or withdrawal of about 10% of the appeals eligible for the program, producing a reduction of approximately 8% in the total number of appeals. This evaluation is also known as CAMP-2.
