A backlog in court cases has long delayed justice for Costa Ricans and put strain on judges and other court officials. Although the judiciary publishes information online on cases, budgets, and staffing, the information is not structured so that citizens can easily monitor court performance. To improve citizens’ access to information, Costa Rica plans to work with citizens to visualize judicial information—such as case status and audit findings—on an easy-to-use website. The new platform will enable the public to track performance by region, circuit, court, and subject area. Citizens will also be able to regularly discuss the data with government officials and make recommendations for reducing the backlog.
