Caseload increased by more than 19% in fiscal year 2008 over the previous year.
Vehicle retention cases filed by the NYPD and license violation cases filed by the TLC accounted for the major share of the increase.
The average adjournment time decreased by two business days from the prior year, averaging 13 days, while the number of adjournment requests increased slightly. This resulted in shorter adjournment times for cases in which the requests were granted.
The settlement rate increased slightly in fiscal year 2008. This was largely attributable to improved settlement rates for vehicle retention cases and TLC license violation cases.
