Professor Matthew Fraidin is quoted in The Washington Post arguing that psychology research supports opening dependency courts.

"Is there a systemic problem? We can’t find out,” said Professor Fraidin. "Would Maryland do better at this if they knew their decision-making process would be visible to outsiders? Of course they would, just like the rest of us. The psychology research says decision-makers are more careful and deliberate, and seek out more information, if they know they’ll have to justify their decision later.”
