Public trust in the state courts has ticked upward in the last two years, according to a recent public opinion survey conducted for the National Center for State Courts (NCSC). According to the survey, courts remain the most trusted branch of government and have seen an increase across a number of broad measures of public confidence since the last survey in 2012. The survey finds that 71 percent of respondents agree with the statement that courts in their state “treat people with dignity and respect.” Respondents also indicate that they would like to see more court services available online.
