The inauguration ceremony of the 2020 Judicial Year of the TAR CAMPANIA took place. Michele Capasso and Pia Molinari spoke on behalf of the Fondazione Mediterraneo.
The work of the Campania Regional Administrative Court was characterised by "rather high standards of efficiency and optimal levels in the relationship between the quality of the work carried out and the resources applied, despite the lack of personnel".
These are the words of the president of the Campania TAR, Vincenzo Salamone, in his report for the inauguration of the judicial year of the regional administrative court.
In 2021, the Campania Regional Administrative Court could count on a staff of 39 units divided into 8 sections, of which the IV section "forced" to work with reduced ranks with only 4 magistrates.
It should be noted," Salamone writes, "that the number of magistrates in service at first instance is considerably lower than the number of magistrates in law, in view of the 49 posts provided for in the establishment plan. The number of staff could increase after the assignment of the winners of the competition still in progress.
"The increase of the staff - underlines the president - would allow the rebalancing of the workloads and a less fragmentation of the tasks". On the results front, Salamone points out that in 2021 there was a 15.28 per cent reduction in the backlog, which made it possible to go from 13,243 pending appeals on 31 December 2020 to 11,220 on 31 December 2021. On the whole - he concludes - the trend of the Court's judicial activity is in line with the rules on the acceleration and definition of judgments in certain times and with the objective recommended by the Presidency Council of the Administrative Justice to reduce the pending cases".
