Special Case Management Challenges in U.S. Terrorism Cases

The Federal Judicial Center in the United States has put together a series of case studies of high-profile terrorism trials that posed significant case management challenges:

"Cases related to terrorism often pose unusual and challenging case-management issues for the courts. Evidence or arguments may be classified; witnesses or the jury may require special security measures; attorneys contacts with their clients may be diminished; other challenges may present themselves. "

"The purpose of this Federal Judicial Center resource is to assemble methods federal judges have employed to meet these challenges so that judges facing the challenges can learn from their colleagues experiences. "

"This Case Studies document includes background factual information about these high-profile cases as well as descriptions of the judges challenges and solutions. The challenges and solutions are summarized in a separate Problems and Solutions document. The information presented is based on a review of case files and news media accounts and on interviews with the judges."

The Center conducts education programs for the judicial branch of the American government.
