March 05, 2003 1 min read

The federal courts of appeals are the last stop before the U.S. Supreme Court and, in most cases, the courts with the final say on constitutional and other federal issues. The number of authorized judgeships for the appellate courts has stayed constant since 1990, while the caseload of those courts has increased 32 percent. The federal judiciary has asked Congress to add a total of six permanent judgeships and four temporary positions to the courts of appeals.
