Bartlett’s Take the Fifth Blog Recaps October 2023 Court Opinions, Tracks New Statistic

Attorney Tad Bartlett, Fishman Haygood special counsel, has published his October 2023 summary of opinions and statistics from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. These statistics are based on 225 total opinions released by the Court. Click here to read more on his Take the Fifth blog.

Starting this month, Bartlett began tracking a new statistic in the “What the appeals are about” section, looking to what parties the dispositions favor. He hopes that this data will allow users to put real numbers to their ideas of whether the Fifth Circuit is defense-friendly or plaintiff-friendly.

The appellate practice at Fishman Haygood is not limited to representation before the appellate courts, but also includes advising clients and their trial counsel on litigation issues to ensure proper preservation of appellate issues at the trial court.
