10th Circuit (incl. bankruptcy)

The United State Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit sits in Denver, CO. The courthouse is the Byron White US Courthouse. In terms of its size, the Tenth Circuit spans its jurisdictional-reach over 20% of the USA's land mass (spanning 560,625 square miles). In addition to the state of Colorado, the Tenth Circuit is comprised of Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Wyoming, and Utah. The Circuit was initially part of the Eighth Circuit, Congressional legislation broke the single circuit into the Eighth and Tenth respectively.

The US District Court of Appeals is in Denver, Co. The District of Kansas has its courthouse situated in Wichita. The District of New Mexico courthouse is in Albuquerque. The Eastern District of Oklahoma courthouse is in Muskogee, and Northern District is in Tulsa. The Western District courthouse in Oklahoma is located in Oklahoma City. The District of Utah courthouse sits in Salt Lake City, and the District of Wyoming courthouse is in Cheyenne, WY.

Currently, there are 12 judges appointed to the bench in the circuit. Of these, there are 10 senior judges. Timothy M. Tymkovich is the Chief Justice presently serving as the head of the circuit system. And, US Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, is the Circuit Justice for the Tenth District.

Among the leading cases in the circuit is United States v Timothy McVeigh (1998) which was a death-penalty sentencing, following the Oklahoma City, OK bombing. He was convicted and executed of the mass-terrorist crime in 2001. Free Speech v Federal Election Committee (2013) is another famous decision from the circuit which required FEC disclaimers to be given to voters, to ensure they were “informed” of the candidates or groups who were speaking.
