This paper examines existing literature on the phenomenon of the vanishing civil trial, analyzes the civil case filing and resolution trends in Washington courts of general jurisdiction, King County Superior Court, King County District Court, and the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, and assesses what role, if any, alternative dispute resolution appears to be having on the commercial trials in these courts.
