Highlights of a report on the excessive length of proceedings in Poland.

On 7 July 2015, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg decided the case of Rutkowski and Others v. Poland, finding that the problem of excessively
lengthy proceedings in Poland is systemic.

Five years after the Rutkowski judgment was passed, the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights decided to investigate whether and if so, to what extent, the judgment has had an impact on the actions of Polish authorities as well as the functioning of the domestic justice system.
