As I mentioned in my February 17, 2013 post about Tennessee personal injury and wrongful death court  filings, the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Court has released  statistics about the Tennessee's justice system.   Among the data produced is information about the number of personal injury and wrongful death jury trials in Tennessee counties for the year ended 2011-12.

Here is the data for Tennessee's  counties that actually had jury trials in tort cases:

Pretty ridiculous that Shelby County had only 47 jury trials. That is with 9 circuit courts - average of roughly 5 per division. Least efficient court system I have ever seen.
