According to a new report from the Office of the State Courts Administrator, judges cleared 41,547 cases statewide in July and August, including 2,793 in Palm Beach County.
Palm Beach’s backlog now stands at 25,697, down 22 percent from July 1, 2012.
Florida’s courts have been hustling to clear foreclosures from their dockets since getting an infusion of money from the legislature to hire additional senior judges and case managers to process files.
