Justice fights Supreme Court over efficiency system

A chief justice from a central Slovakia court has said a new court management system designed by a Swiss group could save judges up to 80% of the time they waste on administrative tasks, and within several years reduce the Slovak court system’s half-million case backlog to manageable levels. She has been opposed by Supreme Court Chief Justice Štefan Harabin, who argues the model does not fit the Slovak system, and that any available money should be spent on computers for judges.
