One of the many priorities of the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) is to provide a timely and accurate accounting of judicial branch statistics.
Caseload statistics for the Supreme Judicial Court, Superior Court and District Court are profiled in Judicial Branch Annual Reports, as well as summarized financial information for the Judicial Branch. All references to years in the reports refer to fiscal years (July 1 through June 30) unless specified otherwise.
