Yesterday, we reviewed governmental entities’ winning percentage, year by year and area of law by area of civil law, for the years 1994 through 1999. Today, we turn our attention to the years 2000 through 2005.

The government won both of its two cases arising in government and administrative law in 2000, and its one case in employment law. The government won two of three cases in constitutional law, but lost its one civil procedure case. In 2001, governmental entities won their one tax law case, four of six constitutional law cases and two of three government and administrative law cases. The government lost their one workers compensation case and their only environmental law case.

Governmental entities had a good year at the Court in 2002. The government won their single government and administrative law case, both their tort cases and their one employment law case. The government won three of our employment law cases. In 2003, the government won their only case in constitutional, employment and civil procedure law. The government won one of two tort law cases. In 2004, the government won all three of its cases in constitutional law and its sole case in contract law, as well as four of five cases in government and administrative law.

The government had a comparatively rough year in civil cases at the Court during 2005. Governmental entities won their one government and administrative law case, and one of their two constitutional law cases. But the government lost one case each in workers compensation, environmental law, employment and insurance law.

Join us back here next Thursday as we review the government’s won-lost record for the years 2006 through 2016.
