Surveys to be conducted July 16 at Morgan District Court

FORT MORGAN, Colo. – People with business at the Morgan District Court on
Wednesday, July 16, 2014, will be asked to participate in a program designed to help ensure the Colorado Judicial Branch is providing the best service possible to the public.

Throughout the day, court employees at 400 Warner Street in Fort Morgan will ask people exiting the building to fill out brief, anonymous survey forms asking about their experiences as jurors, parties to a case or as recipients of other Judicial Branch services. Survey forms will be available in English and Spanish.

In addition, attorneys, law enforcement officers and anyone else who does business with the courts is encouraged to participate.

A similar survey was conducted in 2010 at Morgan District Court. Since 2007, surveys have been conducted at least once in each of Colorado’s 22 judicial districts.

“People who come to our courts rightly expect efficient resolution of disputes, and they deserve the best service we can provide,” said 13th Judicial District Chief Judge Michael K. Singer. “Their opinions will help us determine what we’re doing right, and where there may still be room for improvement.”

The surveys measure public opinion about access to and fairness of the courts. Questions include whether people felt safe in the building, whether they could easily understand the forms they needed, and whether they felt their case was handled in a fair manner. Participants also are asked whether they felt the judicial officer listened to them and had all the necessary information before making a decision, and whether they felt they were treated with courtesy and given clear information about the next step in their case.

During Fiscal Year 2013, 3,363 cases were filed in District Court in the 13th Judicial District (Kit Carson, Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington and Yuma counties), including 1,225 in Morgan District Court; across the district, 8,096 cases were filed in County Court, including 3,120 in Morgan County.
