Sidebar: History and Statistics

A History and Statistics page has been added to the sidebar of Appellate Daily, to create a permanent reference destination for seminal and important background information related to the federal appellate courts, including the Supreme Court.  This page will be updated periodically.  Today, links were added to Article III of the Constitution, the Evarts Act establishing the Courts of Appeals, brief court histories from the Federal Judicial Center, and 2009 caseload statistics for the Courts of Appeals from the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
