Summary This study focuses on the time taken to process direct appeals of capital cases in fourteen states. The fourteen states are: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington. For each state, we examined every capital case resolved on direct appeal by the court of last resort ("COLR") between January 1, 1992 and December 31, 2002. This generated a database of 1,676 cases.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 52-56).
