Criminal Division: Indicative Time to Trial & Not Reached Figures

 

INDICATIVE TIME TO TRIAL IN THE COUNTY COURT

 

As part of the Court’s commitment to the International Framework for Court Excellence adopted in 2010, the Criminal Division publishes monthly updates of the indicative time period in months from Initial Directions Hearing to the commencement of a trial (for Melbourne matters only). The time periods published below reflect the most current assessment by the Division of the time to trial based on the number of judges available to hear trials over the listing period and may thus be subject to variation as circumstances change.

NOT REACHED TRIALS

 

The below figures represent the number of matters which were marked Not Reached in the financial year to date. When a matter is marked Not Reached it indicates there was no judge available to hear the matter and the matter is then re-fixed to a future date, and accorded the appropriate priority. A lower number of Not Reached matters indicates optimal listing by the Court and provides certainty that when a matter is listed it will proceed on that date.
