Filing Your Appeal - Court Orders & Judgments
The court does not have a term in the same sense as the United States Supreme Court. Final judgments are handed down throughout the year. No timetable exists for rendering decisions. This court has one of the fastest turnaround times of any federal circuit court. Nevertheless, factors such as the number and complexity of the issues, whether the case is to be scheduled for oral argument, the extent of unanimity among the judges, and other considerations cause some cases to take longer to decide than others.
