Wisconsin Supreme Court Statistics, 2021-22

These tables are derived from information contained in 52 Wisconsin Supreme Court decisions filed between September 1, 2021, and the end of the court’s term in the summer of 2022.  The total of 52 decisions omits orders pertaining to various motions, petitions, and disciplinary matters involving lawyers and judges. 

Also excluded are (1) Timothy Rave v. SVA Healthcare Services, LLC (dismissed as moot); (2) State v. Nhia Lee and James Cobb v. Gary A. King (dismissed as improvidently granted); and (3) State v. Manuel Garcia and Jama I. Jama v. Jason C. Gonzalez (which resulted in 3-3 per curiam decisions).

When two cases were consolidated and decided with a single decision, they are counted as only one.

The tables are available as a complete set and by individual topic according to the subsets listed below.
