The courthouse is prominent in online cases, including Wiki and RSS-feeds of the opinions and oral arguments as they unfold in the court. Judge Frank H. Easterbrook, who is one of the most prominent economic-scholars, also serves as a Justice for the circuit-system.

Several precedential-decisions have been laid in the Seventh Circuit. Among the cases which were heard by the appellate court are: (Krysta Sutterfield v. City of Milwaukee, et. al., which was a case allowing police to use “exigent circumstances” defense, to enter and search her home without a warrant. Moore v Madigan is another set of cases (stemming from Shepard v Madigan and Moore v Madigan). The case regarded constitutionality of Illinois’s “no-issue” policy for carrying concealed weapons.

Tort law cases, biometric/personal information, real property, civil rights, gay marriage, bankruptcy, and tax court appeals, are a few of the cases which The National Law Review covers on its site. From prominent decisions in today’s online-driven society including the use of biometric scans, to data breach cases, we cover an extensive range of prominent cases, many which are setting precedent today, as such topics haven’t been an issue in the past. The National Law Review also covers general information about the Circuit, appointment news, and Federal and State Agency topics.
