How many cases filed in Lubbock County are actually prosecuted? That was just one of many questions the Lubbock County Judicial Branch wanted answered. That's why it launched the Accountability Through Measurement Study.
Senator Robert Duncan says, "If we are ever to achieve a goal, and that is to have the lowest crime rate in the state of Texas, the first place we'll start is having an efficient court system and we've accomplished that."
The study shows that over the last seven years, the number of cases pending has decreased by 50% which is helping to save money. That's just one reason U.S. District Judge Sam Medina says Lubbock citizens can be proud of their courthouse.
