The Supreme Court has granted a Judicial Management Council workgroup more time to respond to the scores of comments generated by its sweeping proposal to speed the resolution of civil cases in Florida.

The Workgroup on Improved Resolution of Civil Cases filed a 450-page final report, including two appendices and proposed rule amendments, on January 10.

The panel was facing a twice-extended, June 23 deadline to respond to public comments, but Second District Court of Appeal Chief Judge Robert Morris, the workgroup chair, said the panel has been inundated.
