At the request of the Judicial Conference Committee on Court Administration and Case Management, the Federal Judicial Center conducted a study of the use of courtrooms in the U.S. bankruptcy courts. The study, which was conducted from mid-2008 to late 2010, followed completion of a similar study of courtroom use in the federal district courts, see The Use of Courtrooms in U.S. District Courts (2008). Findings reported in the study are based on data collected in nine bankruptcy courts from September 14, 2009, through December 14, 2009, and in nine other bankruptcy courts from January 18, 2010, through April 16, 2010.
