I finally have some basic statistics for FY 2014 (October 1, 2013 to September 30, 2014). As before, the “cases” in the table below are appeals and petitions decided by the Third Circuit, with every unique docket number being treated as a case. To enlarge the table, just click on it.
Compared to FY 2013, see here, statistics for FY 2014 show fewer cases (1,425 versus 1,718 in FY 2013) but generally about the same amount of time between docketing and disposition (e.g., the median for all cases in FY 2014 was 9.83 months, exactly the same as in FY 2013). The percent of cases affirmed, dismissed or denied goes from a low of 72.22% (for bankruptcy appeals) to a high of 100% (for petitions for a writ of mandamus or prohibition). This is a wider range than was found for FY 2013.
