Based on the current caseload, judges who want to keep up can spend no more than 53 minutes on each case and must dispose of nine cases a day. But that's not realistic.
A hearing just for temporary orders in a divorce case takes about an hour, the judges said. Spending three days on a trial means having to find the equivalent of 26 other cases that require no time.

When county commissioners last discussed adding more courts in , the focus was on family cases, which were growing at a greater pace than other types of cases. Recent data indicates that while family cases have grown about 4 percent per year since then, criminal cases have increased by about 10 percent per year.
