Fewer words for 5th Circuit briefs?

What are the odds of a writ grant?

Would you like to know the writ-grant rates in the Louisiana Supreme Court and the five Louisiana courts of appeal? The numbers are published in the Louisiana Supreme Court’s Annual Report for 2013. The report is a treasure chest of information about the operation of Louisiana’s courts. But for appellate practitioners, the most useful information is found on pages 22 through 29, where you’ll find the statistics, including total writ applications filed, total granted, and total denied for each court. For the Supreme Court, you can also see the numbers for rehearing applications. (Hint: not good for the applicant—zero rehearings granted in 2013).
