The commission, in its investigation of the jurisprudence of Louisiana. gathered elaborate data on the amount of work done by courts of all degrees in every parish in the state and supplemented this with much testimony from law yers and judges on the delays of court procedure, overcrowded dockets, the cost of litigation and opinions as to how defects can be remedied. Redistricting of the state for dis trict courts, materially retcucing the number of judges and a provision for districts large enough to give work to two judges will be among the recom mendations. A plan for redistrictina based upon statistics of the amount of legal work to be done in each of the parishes will be presented. The probers, under the direction of Senator George Wesley Smith, who has been in charge of this particular investigation, have been working on the Judiciary report since their return from the Legislature, will continue without interruption until the task is finished.
