Indian Court Is 466 Years Behind Schedule

Idle 5

The High Court in New Delhi is so behind in its work that it could take 466 years to clear the backlog, the court's chief justice said in a report. Even though the average case takes about 5 minutes to decide, the court still has tens of thousands of cases pending, including upward of 600 that are more than 20 years old. The United Nations Development Program says some 20 million legal cases are pending in India. "It's a completely collapsed system," said Prashant Bhushan, a well-known lawyer in New Delhi. "This country only lives under the illusion that there is a judicial system." Maybe we could stimulate the economy a little and help India out by shipping them a few hundred reality TV judge shows — we seem to have an abundance.

Outsourcing? (2, Insightful)

Maybe they can outsource their legal system to the US? We're only a few years behind for 'enemy combatants.'

Yes! We seen all of the lawyers on those late night infomercials and other media postings.
We outsource our IT to India and they outsource their legal system to us and that is a good deal!
Now I just need money to go to law school.

Yes, that's right: Judge Dredd = judge, jury, and executioner all in one. Hell yeah !
