As of the end of the nineties, the population of the Fifth District was 2,092,011. Fresno County accounted for 38.21% of that, Kern County was 31.63% and Stanislaus County was 21.37%. Kings County had 6.19% of the population and Tuolumne accounted for 2.61%.
The Supreme Court reviewed relatively few cases from the Fifth District between 1990 and 1999. There were eight cases from Fresno County, five cases apiece from Kern and Stanislaus counties, and one case each from Kings County and Tuolumne.
Next time we’ll conclude Part 1 of this post, reviewing the nineties, with a look at the data for the Sixth District.
