Supreme Court Annual Review

Here the Supreme Court annual reviewComments from Lyle Denniston.

Some great comments from Chief Justice John Robert including:

  • The entire judiciary budget is two-tenths of one percent of the total government budget.
  • The budget for the coming year for the Supreme Court is $77.2 million.
  • At that rate, each case resolved by the Supreme Court this year costs roughly $1 million.
  • Total cases filed in the Supreme Court were 7,713 – 6,160 were in forma pauperis.
  • “Cases filed with the United States as plaintiff decreased as defaulted student loan cases, which had surged in 2011, declined this year.”
