Yesterday, we began reviewing the areas of law in which government entities have pursued civil appeals since 1994. Today, we’re addressing the years 2000 through 2005.
Like our previous period, constitutional law and government and administrative law cases dominated the docket of cases appealed by government entities. Government entities appealed eighteen constitutional law cases, a dozen cases in government and administrative law, five in tort law and four in employment law. The Court decided three constitutional law cases in 2000, five in 2001, four in 2002, one in 2003, three in 2004 and two in 2005. The Court decided two government and administrative law cases in 2000, three in 2001, one in 2002, five in 2004 and one in 2005. The Court decided one tort case in 2001 and two each in 2002 and 2003. The Court decided one employment law case brought by a governmental entity in 2000, 2002, 2003 and 2005. The Court decided one civil procedure case per year in 2000 and 2003, one workers compensation case in 2001 and 2005 and one environmental law case in 2001 and 2005. The Court decided one tax law case in 2001, one contract law case in 2004 and one insurance law case in 2005.
Join us back here next Thursday as we continue our review of the civil cases appealed by governmental entities.
