Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, Governor, members of the General
Assembly, state officials, judicial colleagues, and friends:

Thank you for the kind invitation to appear before you today.

It's a privilege to visit with you each year about the condition
of lowa's courts.   This address is an opportunity for me to
review with you the significant activities of our courts, to
evaluate whether we're meeting our citizens' needs for justice,
and to recommend improvements as necessary.  I hope this review
helps you with some of the tough decisions you'll face in the
months to come.

Providing Iowans with a fair, effective and efficient court
system is a mission we share with you.  Our roles may be
different, but our goals are not.  The strength of Iowa's
justice system depends, in large part, on the strength of our
partnership.   And we, in the judiciary, recognize the
importance of communication in maintaining a good partnership.
We understand the cost of poor communication, as did former FBI
director, J.  Edgar Hoover.  He learned that even the simplest
message, when not clearly communicated, can have a major impact.
 Years ago in an effort to cut costs, the FBI reduced the size
of memo paper.  One of the new memo sheets ended up on J. Edgar
Hoover's desk.  He disliked it immediately and wrote on the
narrow margin, "Watch the borders."

His message was misinterpreted.  For the next six weeks, it was
extremely difficult to enter the United States by road from
either Mexico or Canada!

I'll try to be clear.

Although the news this year is not uniformly good, I hope you
will conclude, as I have, that much of it is encouraging.

First, I'd like to focus on some of our achievements.  It is
always a pleasure to report on progress.

We're certainly encouraged by progress in the collection of
fines and fees, a matter in which we all are vitally interested.
 I'd like to tell you in some detail what we're doing.

Everyone is offended when some scofflaws are allowed to
accumulate substantial unpaid fines.

Respect for court orders is on the line.  Inconsistent
enforcement of court orders calls into question the authority
and effectiveness of the courts.  A fine is a sentence.  Its
enforcement should be pursued diligently-as diligently as an
enforcement of a jail sentence.  The greatest impact on fine
enforcement is made at the "front-end" of the process-the time
when a sentence is imposed.
We have set in motion a host of changes to improve the fine
collection record of the courts.  Many magistrates and judges
are taking a tougher attitude.  For example, in Linn County,
Magistrate Pamela @@s tells defendants appearing before her that
they are expected to pay their fine that day.  And she goes one
step further.   With the aid of a computer linked to the clerk
of court office, she checks to see if they have unpaid fines
from previous sentences.  If they do, they are told to pay
those, also.

Across the state, all of our judicial districts have stepped up
their fine and collection programs.  Many judges are following
the methods successfully used by the district associate judges
in Scott County.  In that program, the payment of fines, fees
and restitution is made a condition of unsupervised probation in
serious and aggravated misdemeanor cases.  At sentencing,
defendants are told that they must appear before the court on a
date set in the future.  The purpose of the court date is to
determine if the conditions of probation have been met.  Willful
failure to comply with the terms of the unsupervised probation
can result in a finding of contempt of court and jail time.
A special team effort is in place in Sac County.  Magistrates
Warren Bush and Joseph Heidenreich and the clerk of court, Mary
Jo Herrig, and her staff are working together to collect unpaid
fines.  Defendants are sent a notice reminding them of their
unpaid fines and fees.  They are also informed that if the
amount is not paid by a certain date they must appear for a
contempt of court hearing.  Due to this extra effort, the Sac
County court has collected over $22,000 in three months.

We've also achieved remarkable success with the aid of our
computer system in the counties that have it.

We've collected over one million dollars from income tax refund
offsets since 1994.  Our computer system helped make this
possible.  It allows us to electronically send to the Department
of Revenue and Finance lists of people who have unpaid fines. 
'As we expand our computer system into more counties, the scope
of this program mall increase.

This year we start using the central collection unit of the
Department of Revenue and Finance to collect unpaid fines.  Our
computer system is crucial to this operation.  When fines are
not paid for sixty days, we'll send the information to the
central collection unit by computer.  The central collection
unit will then work on the case.  They'll make phone calls, send
notices, and take any further action necessary to enforce

In fiscal year 1995, our courts collected over $54 million. 
Currently our receipts are up 6 percent over last year.  At this
rate, there will be some enhanced court collection funds
available to use for expanding our computer system.  Expanding
our computer system is one of our budget recommendations for
you.  However, we plan to apply most of the enhanced court
collection funds to offset our budget request for the computer
system.  We'll work with you on the details.

We're proud of the extra efforts our judges and staff are making
to enforce fines.  However, it's not our intent to force people
to pay fines in cases of poverty.   But we have no intention of
taking second place in a fine of consumer choices.  There is a
difference between poverty and simply preferring to pay for
cable T.V. Those who are convicted of committing crimes must
expect to make some sacrifices as a consequence.  This is what
fines are all about.

We have other examples of our commitment to effective fine
enforcement.   However, now it's time for a dose of reality so
the visions of dollar signs don't cloud our collective good
judgment.  The types of procedures I mentioned earlier add to
the already heavy workload of our courts.  They take time away
from other priorities.

Furthermore, it would not be cost effective to spend our
valuable resources on cases in which the cost of collecting a
fine far exceeds the fine itself.  And finally, there are some
people who, no matter what steps are taken, just cannot be made
to pay off their debt.  I'm talking about transients; people
who, for whatever reasons, have no money; and people serving
time in prison.  For all these reasons, we must not view the
annual tally of unpaid fines and fees as an unlimited vein of
revenue just waiting to be ended.
There is another area in which we've also made positive strides.
 I'm pleased to report our progress in responding to the
recommendations of our Domestic Abuse Task Force.  Under the
leadership of many judges, and with the help of Jennifer Juhler,
our domestic abuse intervention coordinator, local community
domestic abuse coalitions have been created around the state. 
The purpose of the coalitions is to promote a community response
to the problem of domestic abuse.  We have also sponsored
domestic abuse round table discussions in all of our judicial
districts.   We've been working closely with the Department of
Public Safety to create a statewide domestic abuse registry. 
The registry will provide law enforcement officers around the
state with the most current information on protective orders.

We're making other substantial advances with the help of
Our court computer system, the Iowa Court Information System or
ICIS, is making us more efficient and effective.  It also serves
the needs of and assists other government departments.  For

-We're sending criminal disposition data to the Department of
Public Safety and the Department of Corrections through our
-In a few months, we'll be linked by computer with the
Department of Transportation so it can get traffic and criminal
case information from the courts electronically.

-And we've developed a new program to assist county treasurers
to stop the renewal of vehicle registration of persons who have
unpaid fines.

Technology also can help relieve the record storage problems of
count,v courthouses.  Most of lowa's courthouses are bursting at
the seams with old records.   Records are stacked from floor to
ceiling, piled in attics and basements, and crammed in garages
and storage buildings.  Counties are simply running out of
space.  Records stored in poor conditions are deteriorating
quickly.  Imaging technology may be one solution to this
problem.  We decided to find out.

Last March, the Sac County clerk's office, with the help of many
volunteers, started "purging" court files.  Purging means
removing from a file, and destroying, records which have no
legal value.  Once this was finished, the files were ready to be
reproduced.  A document imaging company was hired to reproduce
the records.  Each document was placed, one at a time, through a
scanner.  An exact reproduction was automatically stored on a
compact disc.  The discs look like those sold in music stores.  
The results of this six-month project are astonishing! Fifty
years of court records that filled sixty-five file drawers are
now stored on eleven four-inch Discs.

Technology can also help us manage the flood of criminal cases. 
Often in some of our high-volume courts, the system is so
clogged that judges have little choice but to make decisions
about criminal defendants based upon incomplete information.  
Polk County district associate court is developing an automated
case management system to solve this problem.  This system will
serve as a prototype for courts around the state.  This system
will link, by computer, judges, the county attorneys office, the
jail, the public defender's office, the department of
correctional services, and the clerk's office.  Once this is
ready, everyone on the network will have instant access to
information about criminal defendants.  That's the way it ought
to be.
I wholeheartedly support further use of technology! My
technology of comfort is a sharp, number two, Ticonderoga
pencil.  It's user-friendly, low maintenance, and it's not
smarter than I am.  But times are changing and we all must
change with it.

I'm delighted to note that a majority of Iowans favor the use of
technology in the courts.  'in response to a new survey
conducted for our Commission on Planning for the Twenty-first
Century, a majority polled thought that increasing the use of
computer and communications technology in court operations is a
good idea.

Today, we've set up a court technology exhibit in the hall
outside our courtroom downstairs to showcase some of our
innovative programs.  Please come down after these remarks, join
us for coffee, and look through our display.

We're making significant progress in the area of planning for
the future ' re.  As that wise baseball sage, Yogi Berra,
pointed out, "Me future isn't what it used to be."

We are eagerly awaiting the report of our Planning Commission,
which is chaired by Justice Linda Neuman.  Never before have the
Iowa courts conducted a comprehensive, long-range planning
effort of this magnitude.  Since last May, sixty hardworking
Iowans from all walks of life have devoted substantial time to
this project.  They have been closely examining our court system
and studying changes which will help us meet the needs of Iowans
in the Twenty-first Century.  Thank you in advance for the
financial support your leadership has pledged for this study.

The Planning Commission is scheduled to complete its work and
report to the Supreme Court by June.  A year from now, we hope
to provide you with a full complement of legislative proposals
which will help prepare our courts for the future.   I am
confident that together we can shape a justice system that will
continue, even in the face of tremendous changes in society, to
administer the highest levels of justice.

Now, I'd like to journey back a bit.

Last year in my State of the Judiciary message, I reported that
the courts were struggling under the weight of a crushing
caseload.  Case filings in all categories were at record levels.
 I talked with you about our most troubling cases, juvenile,
domestic abuse and criminal, which were consuming most of our
court resources.  We faced the strong possibility that all of
our resources would eventually be used for criminal matters at
the expense of civil cases.  More resources, particularly more
judges, were needed to help us confront this crisis.

Thank you, for your generous response.  The additional resources
you provided, although not our full request, have somewhat eased
the pressure.

It would be easy for us to respond to this help by leaning back,
and breathing a sigh of relief.  But that would be a mistake
because the problems I described last year are still very much
with us.
Keeping up with the rising tide of cases remains our biggest
challenge., More than one-half million cases, not including
simple traffic violations, were filed last year in this state. 
That's more than one case every minute.  In other words, during
the time that I'm visiting with you this morning, thirty new
cases will be filed.

Criminal, domestic abuse and juvenile cases continue to crowd
our dockets and consume our time the most.

Please listen to the growth last year in the number of these

-Indictable criminal cases, the most serious crimes, jumped 10

-Simple misdemeanor cases, a category in which we always see
high-volume, increased 13 percent.

-juvenile cases grew 6 percent.

-And, domestic abuse cases continue to pour in at a frenzied
rate; they shot up 31 percent.

There's no end in sight to these alarming trends.  Because of
time constraints, I won't go into more detail about the caseload
now.  But I ask that you carefully review the information that
is attached to these remarks.
You must bear in mind that new laws and mandates inevitably
increase the pressure.  Tougher criminal penalties add to the
demands on our courts.  New civil remedies add to the demands on
our courts.  Shorter time frames for hearings add to the demands
on our courts.  Each one adds to the demands placed on the
courts, which in turn adds to the need for more resources.  It's
like trying to manufacture a newly designed car without
retooling the factory.

How does all of this look to the hundreds of Iowans coming to
court each day?

Sensational trials, such as that of O.J. Simpson, grab
front-page headlines and public attention.  But while they serve
in some ways to educate the public about court procedures, they
bear little resemblance to typical cases that represent the
courts' routine business.

Last year, I provided you with some descriptions of the hectic
pace in our urban courthouses.  Rural courts -are also
overwhelmed.  However, there's a major difference between court
service in a rural courthouse and an urban courthouse.  Rural
courts do not have the luxury of having a judge available each
In Dallas County, just to the west, court service day resembles
a "cattle call" with people nervously waiting for hours to have
their case heard.  Criminal matters get top priority.  They are
heard first.  Civil cases are heard later in the day only if all
criminal matters are completed.  It's not unusual for court
service to continue into the night with some matters left

Many cases get "bumped" until later dates.  Recently, I learned
of a dissolution case pending in Dallas County involving the
custody of two children.  The day before trial, the case was
continued because all of the judges were busy, presiding over
other cases.  The family came back six weeks later.  Again, the
day before trial,
 the case had to be continued because the judges were too busy
on other matters.  Imagine the strain on the parents and the
children.  The case is scheduled again to be heard this month. 
I certainly hope that it can be.

What can we do to reduce some of this enormous burden and still
provide the public with an appropriate method for resolving

Alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, is one way to
reduce our civil caseload.  According to the survey which I
mentioned earlier, this is favored by most Iowans.

This past year we've been working with our judicial districts
and private providers to furnish mediation services around the
state.  Many of our busiest courts now offer small claims
mediation.  Mediation of personal injury cases appears to be
growing rapidly.

Mediation of family law cases is not catching on as much as we'd
like it to.  We don't know why.  Educating people on the value
of mediation in these cases should help.  We've sponsored, with
the help of other groups, many training programs on the use of
mediation in family law cases.  We hope this training promotes
mediation and encourages people to try it.

Two new family law mediation projects are underway thanks to
grants from the court's technology fund, which you provided to
us two years ago.  The Johnson County Bar Association and the
Sixth Judicial District have teamed up to start a court-annexed
family mediation program.  The Second judicial District and the
Center for Creative Justice in Ames are working together on a
child custody and visitation mediation project to divert
modification of custody claims from the courts.

Whether mediation will make a noticeable difference in our
caseload remains to been seen.  However, any progress we make on
the civil side is overshadowed by the relentless growth in
criminal, domestic abuse and juvenile cases.

Breaking the back of crime, protecting victims of domestic
abuse, and turning around the lives of troubled children are
high on your agenda.  We share your concerns and our courts
wrestle with these issues daily.  But right now, these cases
have us in a "choke-hold" with little time left for other
important cases.
I want to commend our judges and staff.  They're working their
hardest, with the aid of technology and innovative programs, to
handle the constant barrage of cases.  However, we need your
continued support.

As long as the unprecedented demand for court services
continues, we'll need more judges, more staff and more support. 
Our specific budget needs and recommendations are contained in
our budget request which we have submitted to you.

In addition, adequate compensation to attract and retain good
judges shores up the strength of our operations.  Our judges
were heartened last year by your attempt to meaningfully respond
to the recommendations of the judicial compensation commission. 
We hope that issue will be reexamined by you this year.

You deserve and have our warmest thanks for responding to our
concerns in the past.  We must continue to work together to meet
the public's need for a fair and effective court system.
