The judicial reform launched two years ago has made it easier for lawsuits to be filed, resulting in a rapid rise in the number of court cases, the nation's top court said on Thursday.

In response to public complaints about the difficulty and inconvenience in filing lawsuits, the Supreme People's Court implemented a new litigation policy in May 2015.

Courts at all levels were prohibited from declining a case if it meets basic legal criteria, and a preliminary review of merits was waived.
