2nd Circuit (incl. bankruptcy)

The National Law Review regularly publishes articles on The United States Second Circuit Court of Appeals. It is the second of the 13-federal circuits which make up the United States Court System. The District of Connecticut, the Northern/Southern/Eastern/Western Districts of New York, and the District of Vermont fall under the Second Circuit’s jurisdiction.

The clerk’s office is located at the Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse in Manhattan, and this is also where the Second Circuit hears cases. In Connecticut, the District Court sits in New Haven. For the Eastern District of New York, the District Court is located in Brooklyn. The Northern District Court in New York sits in Syracuse and the Southern District Court is in New York, NY. The Western District Court sits in Buffalo, and Vermont’s District Court is in Burlington.

The Second Circuit is considered a mid-sized appellate system, as it currently is comprised of 13 active judges and 11 senior judges appointed to hear cases. Judges currently on the bench were appointed during the Clinton, Bush (Jr and Sr), Reagan, Carter, and Obama Presidencies. The Chief Judge for the Second Circuit is Robert A. Katzmann and Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the Circuit Justice for the District.

Several famous cases have set precedent for future decisions which have gone through the Second Circuit courthouses. United States v. One Book Called Ulysses (1933) is one of the most famous cases. It held that “offensive language” in the novel Ulysses, was not considered obscene. The case set precedent for free expression in literature, and the case is still widely cited nearly a century later.

The The National Law Review includes: tax court cases, bankruptcy filings, appeals from final judgment orders, hearing of extraordinary writs (cert), reviews of enforcement orders, administrative officer appeals, and more. The Federal Circuit also has original jurisdiction from all matters arising out of Constitutional question/issues, Treatises, Laws of the United States, and cases in equity which arise between parties. Immigration or naturalization cases falling under the Federal Circuit are also covered on The National Law Review website.
