(4) Affected Public who Will be Asked or Required to Respond, as Well as a Brief Abstract: Primary: State Appellate Courts. The purpose of the CJSSCTA project is to provide detailed statistical information on civil cases adjudicated at the appellate level in State courts. The project will collect information from court records on individual civil cases disposed in a sample of State intermediate appellate courts and courts of last resort. The types of information collected will include the types of civil cases appealed after trial to an intermediate appellate court or court of last resort, the impact of the appellate process on trial court outcomes, the extent that appellate claims are dismissed or withdrawn before being decided on the merits, the types of legal issues raised on appeal, the number of appeals ending in a published opinion, and the rate of judicial dissent at the appellate level. The survey will also collect aggregate count information on the number of appeals referred to and settled through court annexed alternative dispute resolution programs. (5) An Estimate of the Total Number of Respondents and the Amount of Time Estimated for an Average Respondent to Respond/Reply: It is estimated that information will be collected on 1,500 civil cases concluded by trial in 2005 in which either the plaintiff or defendant filed a notice of appeal to an intermediate appellate court or court of last resort.

Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1.5 hours per data collection form for the intermediate appellate court and court of last resort forms and 2 hours for the alternative dispute resolution forms. The estimate of hour burden is based on prior civil justice data collections and pre-tests of the current forms. (6) An Estimate of the Total Public Burden (in Hours) Associated with the Collection: The estimated public burden associated with this collection is 830 hours. It is estimated that on-site data collection will be necessary for about 500 of the 1,500 civil appeals. Hence, the estimated burden hour to complete each of the appellate data collection forms will result in a total of 750 burden PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 hours to complete the CJSSCTA (500 data collection forms multiplied by 1.5 hours per form = 750 burden hours). In addition to the case level appellate data collection forms, it is estimated that 40 appellate courts will have some form of court—annexed alternative dispute resolution (ADR) program. The estimated burden hour to complete the ADR spreadsheets for the participating appellate courts will result in a total of 80 burden hours to complete the ADR portion of this project: (40 appellate courts with ADR programs multiplied by 2 hours per coding spreadsheet = 80 burden hours). Therefore, the total burden hours for the CJSSCTA amounts to 830 burden hours (750 burden hours to complete the case level appellate forms + 80 hours to complete the ADR spreadsheets).

    (4) Affected Public who Will be Asked or Required to Respond, as 
Well as a Brief Abstract: Primary: State Appellate Courts. The purpose 
of the CJSSCTA project is to provide detailed statistical information 
on civil cases adjudicated at the appellate level in State courts. The 
project will collect information from court records on individual civil 
cases disposed in a sample of State intermediate appellate courts and

the types of civil cases appealed after trial to an intermediate

process on trial court outcomes, the extent that appellate claims are

legal issues raised on appeal, the number of appeals ending in a 
published opinion, and the rate of judicial dissent at the appellate 
level. The survey will also collect aggregate count information on the 
number of appeals referred to and settled through court annexed 
alternative dispute resolution programs.
    (5) An Estimate of the Total Number of Respondents and the Amount 
of Time Estimated for an Average Respondent to Respond/Reply: It is 
estimated that information will be collected on 1,500 civil cases 
concluded by trial in 2005 in which either the plaintiff or defendant 
filed a notice of appeal to an intermediate appellate court or court of 
last resort. Information will also be collected on the number of cases 
filed and disposed in court annexed alternative dispute resolution 
programs. Annual cost to the respondents is based on the number of 
hours involved in providing information from court records for the

dispute resolution forms. Public reporting burden for this collection 
of information is estimated to average 1.5 hours per data collection

estimate of hour burden is based on prior civil justice data 
collections and pre-tests of the current forms.
    (6) An Estimate of the Total Public Burden (in Hours) Associated 
with the Collection: The estimated public burden associated with this 
collection is 830 hours. It is estimated that on-site data collection 
will be necessary for about 500 of the 1,500 civil appeals. Hence, the 
estimated burden hour to complete each of the appellate data collection 
forms will result in a total of 750 burden hours to complete the 
CJSSCTA (500 data collection forms multiplied by 1.5 hours per form = 
750 burden hours). In addition to the case level appellate data 
collection forms, it is estimated that 40 appellate courts will have 
some form of court--annexed alternative dispute resolution (ADR) 
program. The estimated burden hour to complete the ADR spreadsheets for 
the participating appellate courts will result in a total of 80 burden 
hours to complete the ADR portion of this project: (40 appellate courts 
with ADR programs multiplied by 2 hours per coding spreadsheet = 80 
burden hours). Therefore, the total burden hours for the CJSSCTA 
amounts to 830 burden hours (750 burden hours to complete the case 
level appellate forms + 80 hours to complete the ADR spreadsheets).
