Report on Racial and Ethnic Fairness in the Judicial Process

Group: Maryland Courts

URL: http://www.courts.state.md.us/publications/pdfs/racialethnicfairness04.pdf

Description

In the final analysis, the Commission accepted the overall premise that perceptions of court system bias by users, however generated, were an important element of a study. We have found that, whether fact or fiction, the perception of bias across significant segments of the public is very real and in need of being addressed by the court system. Accordingly, with this report, we include recommendations to the Chief Judge that we hope will improve the perceptions and experiences of court users as to the level of justice extant in the Maryland court system.
