Hello, all. I have been trying to find (and have failed, thus far) historical analyses of the average length of time court cases take, from start to finish, in the United States over time.

I have a theory that, as a proxy for the increasing complexities of the legal system over time, court cases - across all categories (civil, federal, etc) - should also be taking significantly longer, and I am now trying to find evidence of that.

If anyone could point me in the direction of such statistical research - even where to look - I would extremely appreciate any and all help.

There are databases of specific types of suits, some of which are free. For a long-established example, consider the comprehensive database Stanford has created of securities class actions. See http://securities.stanford.edu/stats.html for more detail. If you are good at mining text data, that source is rich. In particular, it includes information on settlements, not merely on judgments. (Of course, it's only for class actions that you can expect data on settlements since they often aren't public for other types of suits. )
