Appellate Reversal Rate Up, Time to Process Appeals Up, Per Cal. Court Stats Report Some interesting information about California appellate courts from the 2020 Court Statistics Report:

Timothy Kowal, Esq.
October 16, 2020
-- The rate of reversal in 2019 was up to 18% in civil cases, from 16% in 2018.

-- About 4% of appeals are dismissed. (This should make you think about appealability and timeliness issues!)

-- Last year saw the most depublished opinions in a decade. Not by a lot. But I find it noteworthy whenever the government says it does not want to hear from the public about something the government did.

-- The median number of days to process a civil appeal, from filing to opinion, has increased slightly from 577 to 589.

-- The last point is curious because there has been a slight downward trend in the number of appeals filed over recent years. #litigation #attorneys #triallawyers #appeals #appellate #legal #supremecourt
