Beschreibung:

For most of their history, the U.S. courts of appeals have toiled in obscurity, well out of the limelight of political controversy. But as the number of appeals has
increased dramatically, while the number of cases heard by the Supreme Court has remained the
same, the courts of appeals have become the court of last resort for the vast majority of
litigants. This enhanced status has been recognized by important political actors, and as a
result, appointments to the courts of appeals have become more and more contentious since the
1990s. This combination of increasing political salience and increasing political controversy
has led to the rise of serious empirical studies of the role of the courts of appeals in our
legal and political system.
