Wisconsin Supreme Court Statistics, 2000-2001

The following tables are derived from information contained in 91 Wisconsin Supreme Court decisions filed between September 1, 2000, and August 31, 2001.  In addition to these 91 decisions, two deadlocked (3-3) per curiam decisions were filed—State v. Bond and State ex rel. Marberry v. Macht—which figure only in the “Number of Oral Arguments Presented” table.  The total of 91 decisions also does not include the following items contained in the Supreme Court’s listing of opinions and dispositional orders for this period: (1) decisions arising from disciplinary proceedings against judges and lawyers; and (2) orders pertaining to motions for reconsideration and motions to dissolve injunctions.  The decisions may be found on the Wisconsin Court System website.  http://wicourts.gov
