During the past two years there have been several significant developments in New York related to achieving prompt trials in criminal prosecutions. These developments, which include judicial decisions, administrative rules and legislative enactments, come into special focus when delay in the trial of criminal cases is attributable to calendar congestion and the need for additional personnel and facilities. This article will examine these decisions, rules and statutes, with particular reference to their relationship to basic principles of judicial administration.
