About Left Coast Appeals
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is the largest federal circuit by any number of measures — geographic size, number of judges, and sheer volume of cases. With our Ninth Circuit Statistics, we examine the workings of the Court based on a dataset of all published and unpublished opinions. With our En Banc Tracker, we make sense of the Court’s complex — and busy — en banc proceedings. And with our This Week at the Ninth feature, we highlight key decisions issued each week, with a focus on civil and business-related litigation.
