This report is a study of the recent development of case management by federal judges during both the pretrial and posttrial phases of litigation. After discussing the underlying assumptions about the traditional judicial role, the author gives a full description of how judges manage both phases of lawsuits. Next the author analyzes what is currently known about the results of pretrial management and what effect such management might have upon the traditional judicial role. Finally, the author sets forth the alternative routes which judicial reformers might follow. An appendix on the iconography of justice is included.
