For this year-end report, the Chief Justice presents the facts alone, with his comments being like a cover letter memorandum. In summary, the chief justice reports,
The courts are operating soundly, and the nation’s dedicated federal judges are conscientiously discharging their duties. I am privileged and honored to be in a position to thank the judges and court staff throughout the land for their devoted service to the cause of justice.
Given the status of economy, and, in particular, the legal industry, the Chief Justice refrains from the story of judicial pay (which in my view, the total compensation (value of pay plus benefits) is exceptionally good).
In the appendix to the report, the Chief Justice provides an explanation of the workload of the judiciary. I will focus on the Supreme Court’s workload.
