Why does it take so long for my case to be resolved?

The American justice system is set up with a number of procedural safeguards. These safeguards include a defendant's right to trial and the right of a defendant to confront his or her accuser. Since a defendant has a right to confront the witnesses against him, when a witness is unable to attend a trial or hearing the trial must be rescheduled. This is a fairly frequent occurrence. Additionally, there are a limited number of weeks each year (as few as 4 and as many as 6 weeks) during which jurors are available to serve. It is only during these times that a case may go to jury trial.
