Time to Milestones

The Time to Milestones Report provides a statistical analysis, including average and median times to reach key Litigation Milestones in cases. The Time to Milestones Report is useful for estimating litigation schedules and budgets. Times are calculated from the date the complaint was filed to the date of the Milestone, and Milestones are determined based on Docket Navigator‘s classification of pleadings, orders, and other litigation documents.

The Time to Milestones tab is automatically filtered by the selected judge, but users can use the green Edit Filters button and select additional criteria to modify results.
