Chief Court Statistician, Dr. Denarto Dennis, says local courts should attain 75% trial date certainty by next year.

Chief Justice Bryan Sykes has set a target of 95% trial date certainty.

Dr Dennis says the plan is to ensure that a majority of cases proceed according to schedule.

He says the courts are currently 60% trial date certainty. Dr Dennis says if the stakeholders improve their performance, as is projected, that figure will increase.
