In examining Dallas County’s rate of time to disposition for juvenile cases, the Office of the Dallas County District Attorney examined data from the Texas Office of Court Administration and discovered that the time-to-disposition rate for juvenile cases within the county was slower compared with other urban counties across the state. In addition, the rates were much slower than the national standard set by the Model Time Standards established by the Conference of State Court Administrators, Conference of Chief Justices, American Bar Association House of Delegates, and the National Association for Court Management.
