6th Circuit (incl. bankruptcy)

The United States Sixth Circuit includes the states of: Tennessee,  Ohio, Kentucky, and Michigan. The US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is the Potter Stewart US Courthouse in Cincinnati, OH. Michigan and Kentucky are further broken down to the Eastern/Western Districts. Tennessee is broken down to Eastern/Western/Northern District, and Ohio is broken down into the Northern/Southern Districts.

The US Court of Appeals for the sixth circuit is in Cincinnati. Kentucky’s Eastern District Court is in Lexington and Western District is in Louisville. Michigan’s Eastern District Court is in Detroit and Western District is in Grand Rapids. The Northern District Court in Ohio is in Cleveland and Southern District in Columbus. The Eastern District Court in Tennessee is in Knoxville, Middle District in Nashville, and Western District in Memphis, TN.

Currently there are 16 active judges and 12 senior judges which make up the bench in the Sixth Circuit Court System. Elena Kagan is the Circuit Judge on the Supreme Court, and Ransey Guy Cole Jr is the Chief Justice for the Sixth Circuit. President William Howard Taft was the only individual to be president and serve as the Chief Justice for the Circuit Court, where he presided over the Sixth Circuit.

American Civil Liberties Union v National Security Agency (2007) is one of the famous cases to come out of this Circuit. The court in this case held that plaintiffs didn’t have proper standing to bring the lawsuit against the NSA. They could not present evidence that they were “targets” of the TSP (Terrorist Surveillance Program). The Appellate court reversed the lower court’s ruling finding that plaintiffs could not prove they were or would be subject to surveillance by the NSA.

The Sixth Circuit has seen plenty of litigation going through the circuit and appellate level in recent years. From mergers & acquisitions, to recent reversals on lower-court cases, the circuit is highly influential in setting precedent in its own district, and throughout the US. The Sixth Circuit is also known for its high rate of reversals at the US Supreme Court level, as a total of 24 out of the 25 times, from October 2008 and ending in June 2013, cases were overturned, making it the highest overturn rate in the US.

The National Law Review covers a broad range of cases decided in the Sixth Circuit Government Surveillance, bankruptcy litigation, tax-court appeals, jurisdictional rights of parties to a lawsuit, class action lawsuits, opioid addiction and drug cases, and cases dealing with employee/employer lawsuits and employee rights. The National Law Review covers general information detailing appointments in the Sixth Circuit, Agency News (NLRB, EEOC, DOJ, DoD, etc.), and the latest lawsuits in the Circuit Court System.
