A pilot program to speed the pace of civil cases in Orange County Superior Court has proved so successful that four more judges will be added to the project, a participating judge said Tuesday. Superior Court Judge John C. Woolley, who has been involved with the program since its inception, said that while the program has showed encouraging results, it has also meant a much heavier workload and a resulting increase in office staff. Still, Woolley said he was "gratified" at the findings of a report by the National Center for State Courts that singled out the county for "remarkable" results.
