In 1988, seeing court caseloads burgeoning with the population, Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Frank Gordon decided that a coordinated, long-range plan was needed to carry Arizona’s judicial system into the new millennium. He appointed the Commission on the Courts, a 34-member “blue-ribbon” group from across the state to develop that plan, and to make specific recommendations for the judiciary to handle the growth and technological change coming at it, while constantly improving quality. Eddie Basha served as Chair; Charles Ares (U of A College of Law) and the late Jack Whiteman (CEO of Empire Southwest) were Vice Chairs.
