|*For the TCC, “Days in Court” is defined as the number of court sitting days scheduled which include conference call days, courtroom scheduled sitting days and on duty judge days. Due to the manner data was captured in the Appeals System Plus (ASP), the numbers for “Days in Court” for the TCC that appeared in the CAS Annual Report in previous years were understated. Consequently, the statistics have been adjusted to reflect actual numbers of days in court scheduled and have been applied retroactively.|
