The Ninth Circuit decides thousands of appeals ever year. We’ve collected data on every civil, non-prisoner appeal resolved by a merits panel since January 1, 2020 to provide a picture of when and how the Court renders its opinions. Below are interactive charts that illustrate some of the more interesting variables that affect the timing of the Court’s decisions — including argument location, whether the opinion is published, and the Court’s ultimate disposition. Use the filters and date ranges to see what interesting trends you can discover. Check back soon, as these charts are updated frequently.
