How do we make the courts run more smoothly? Cases take too long and are too expensive, mired in endless argument and counter-argument that are the hallmarks of our adversarial system. What if we were to set time limits? Would that work?
Well, let's try it. Each side presents their best evidence, and if magistrate or jury isn't convinced, they can ask for more time from each side. If it works for Cricket, that most venerable of British institutions, it should work for courts. Who knows, they may even become spectator sports?
