GOAL 3: TO PROVIDE DUE PROCESS AND EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAW TO ALL WHO HAVE BUSINESS BEFORE THE COURT; AND TO DEMONSTRATE INTEGRITY IN ALL PROCEDURES AND DECISIONS.


Objective

3.5 To ensure that appropriate responsibility is taken for the enforcement of court orders.

Intent of the Objective

Courts should not direct that certain actions be taken or prohibited and then allow those bound by their orders to honor them more in the breach than in the observance. This objective encourages courts to ensure that their orders are enforced. The integrity of the dispute resolution process is reflected in the degree to which the parties adhere to awards and settlements arising out of them. Non-compliance may indicate misunderstanding, misrepresentation, or a lack of respect for, or confidence in, the courts. Obviously, courts cannot assume total responsibility for the enforcement of all of their decisions and orders. The responsibility of the courts for enforcement varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, program to program, case to case, and event to event; however, all courts have a responsibility to take appropriate action for the enforcement of their orders.
