Media Alerts on Federal Courts of Appeals

Media Alerts on Federal Courts of Appeals

The new Media Alerts on Federal Courts of Appeals Website of the ABA Standing Committee on Federal Judicial Improvements is designed to provide reporters, lawyers, educators, and the public with prompt, accurate, unbiased information about newsworthy and legally significant cases pending in and decided by the Federal Courts of Appeals.

Use this website to find short summaries of recent opinions of public interest and noteworthy cases pending oral argument.
Currently, the website covers the Third, Fifth, and Ninth Circuits, and is a pilot program. If successful, they plan to expand coverage to include the other circuits. From time to time, they will also include significant district court cases.

Cases are selected and summarized by distinguished law professors, supported by their students.
