Different types of cases impose different work demands on judges. Case weights are a measure of the average time consumed by cases of one type relative to other types. In 2003-2004, the Federal Judicial Center conducted a study to update existing weights for federal district courts using an event-based method. This method, which was new to the federal courts, combined information on the type and frequency of case events with information on the time judges require to complete these events.

Conley, Shari Seidman Diamond, William B. Fairley, David A. Freedman, Joseph L. Gastwirth, Dale A. Nance, Marc Rosenblum, Michael J. Saks, Sheldon L. Trubatch).

This monograph consists of an overview of the law of redistricting, a summary of statistical techniques frequently used in redistricting litigation, and a discussion of some of the major case management challenges presented by such cases. The legal overview focuses on Voting Rights Act, Equal Protection Clause, and one person-one vote cases. The Center prepared this monograph as a resource for judges assigned cases challenging legislative redistricting plans developed in response to the 2000 census.
