The number of civil cases lingering on the dockets of Delaware’s federal judges is on the rise, according to a report released last week by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. However, the report also indicated that the state’s federal judges are continuing to rule more quickly on the motions before them, at a pace well above the national average.

According to the report, which is issued under the Civil Justice Reform Act, the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware had 105 civil cases pending for three years or longer as of Sept. 30, 2016. That represents a six-month increase of roughly 20 percent from the 87 cases before the court in March of last year.
