This protest produced improvement, the average delay falling to four months by 2007. In that year, the court stopped publishing the average delay in its Annual Report. Delays escalated to six months in 2009, eight months in 2010 and six months in 2011. In August 2011, The Daily Record calculated each judge's record, ranging from 1.6 months for Judge Alan Wilner, a retired judge rarely called to active service by the chief judge, to 24.2 months for Judge John Eldridge, the most frequently recalled judge. For the current judges, delays ranged from three months to 12. In one criminal case, an appeal remains pending seven years after argument — cold comfort for the defendant, who in the meantime has served his five-year prison sentence.
