Here’s a chart I’ve prepared for an upcoming CLE presentation showing the per-judge workload of each Louisiana Court of Appeal for 2018. (Click on or touch the chart to see it full-sized.) This shows, for each circuit, the total numbers of cases (blue), appeals (orange), and writ applications (green), divided by the number of judges in each circuit. The numbers of judges for each circuit come from La. R.S. 13:312.1. The other numbers come from the Louisiana Supreme Court’s 2018 Annual Report. We see that, any way you slice it, the First Circuit is by far the busiest appellate court in the state, and its judges have the heaviest workload.
