11th Circuit (incl. bankruptcy)

The Eleventh Circuit of the US Court of Appeals is located in the Southeastern region of the United States. It spans across Florida, Alabama, and Georgia. The US Court of Appeals for the circuit is in Georgia, and is the Elbert P. Tuttle US Court of Appeals Building in Atlanta. Although these districts were originally a part of the Fifth Circuit, in 1981 Congressional Legislation split the two circuits into the Fifth and Eleventh US Circuits.

The US Court of Appeals is in Atlanta, Georgia. The Middle District courthouse in GA is in Macon, and the Southern District courthouse is in Savannah, GA. In Alabama, the Middle District court is in Montgomery, the Northern District Court is in Birmingham, and the Southern District courthouse is in Mobile, AL. In the state of Florida, the Middle District is in Orlando, Northern District is in the state’s capital of Tallahassee, and the Southern District courthouse is in Miami, Florida.

There are currently 12 active judges sitting on the bench for the Eleventh Circuit; of these judges, seven are senior judges for their respective districts. Edward Earl Carnes is the Chief Justice for the Circuit and Clarence Thomas, who is also a US Supreme Court Associate Justice, is the Circuit Justice.

Smith v Board of School Commissioners of Mobile County (1987) was one of the cases which set precedent for future cases in the Eleventh Circuit. The court held that schools in Mobile County, AL could use textbooks, even though some parents believed they promoted secular humanism as a religion. USA v Alabama (2011) was another precedent-setting case dealing with immigration and border control issues. The US filed a lawsuit seeking declaratory and injunctive relief claiming a new AL state law was preempted by the Federal Immigration Law, Immigration & Nationality Act, and a violation of the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution.

The National Law Review covers several cases in the Eleventh Circuit. Immigration is a major area of law which is dealt with in the lower states. Elderly law (nursing home, abuse, etc.), labor and employment rights, tax evasion and tax appeal, bankruptcy, intellectual property, and tort cases are highly covered on the site. Additionally, the National Law Review covers the latest legislative, election, and agency news, as well as news coming directly from the circuit courts, on our website.
