Tables on this page contain statistics calculated using data I collected from opinions and judgment orders posted either on the Third Circuit’s website or on the archive pages maintained by Villanova University (the link to these pages can be found on the Third Circuit’s website). The data I collected is a subset of the data available to the Administrative Office, and as such, the statistics found here are not directly comparable to the statistics available in the “Judicial Business” Reports and tables published by the Administrative Office.
These tables provide information on time to decision and the percent of appeals affirmed or dismissed for broad categories of appeals.
Time to Decision
These tables provide information on time to decision only; civil appeals are broken down into narrower categories (e.g., Torts, Contract-Insurance).
Probability of Success
Judges’ Affirmance (or Reversal) Rates
These tables provide information on the percent of cases affirmed or dismissed, by judge.
