KLAS-TV: Court Overload

"It is a major problem. Down at the family court campus right now judges can only hear their cases four days a week because we don't have enough courtrooms for the amount of judges there. Down at district court we get e-mails all the time 'can you help us find a courtroom, can you help us find space to hear this matter, to hear this trial?'"
The overload may be bad, but at least one pressure is being relieved: population growth. If population growth turns negative, as it seems to be doing, then caseloads probably aren't going to get much bigger than they are now.
