An extensive program of internal reforms in the Manhattan Branch of the New York City Criminal Court is evaluated according to 22 performance criteria reflecting the quality of justice, processing efficiency, the burdens placed on participants in Court actions, and morale and dignity in the Court. By comparing the results of several alternative modes of operation, conclusions are drawn with regard to the advantages and disadvantages of the component reforms. Recommendations include a variety of specific measures to enhance the value of the reforms, as well as suggestions for continued testing. 141 pp.
