We generate an average of thirty-one (31) orders per day here in Division 8. That’s one-hundred and fifty-five (155) orders per week. Six-hundred and twenty (620) orders per month. Seven-thousand-four-hundred and forty (7,440) orders per year.
The costs associated with mailing out that much correspondence is correspondingly enormous! In 2009 I made the executive … actually the judicial … decision to send out all orders electronically.
We have, as a result, $aved over $5,000 per year on postage, paper and envelopes; substantially decreased the wear and tear on our lowest-bidder government-issue copiers; and substantially increased the amount of time available to courtroom personnel to spend doing the other 999,999 things they are underpaid to do.
