In October 1969 four judges of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York embarked on a two-year experimental program to test the effectiveness of the individual calendar system. The judges were selected by lot from among a number of judges who volunteered to serve on the pilot program. The Pilot Project operated alongside the court's master calendar system in order to determine the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two systems.
