This data collection examines the impact of caseload
pressures on both intermediate appellate courts and supreme courts for
each state in the nation. The data describe in detail the changes made
by appellate courts and supply information related to each change.
These changes include (1) adding judges, law clerks and staff
attorneys, (2) expanding or creating intermediate appellate courts, (3)
reducing panel size, (4) using summary procedures, (5) curtailing
opinion practices by deciding cases without opinion or unpublished and
memo opinions, and (6) curtailing oral argument length.
