AO Releases Annual Report and Court Statistics

The year 2016 was a time of innovation and progress at the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts (AO), the agency reported today in two releases detailing its activities and programs over the 12-month period.

The Annual Report of the Director highlights the agency’s efforts to increase efficiencies, contain costs, and adopt innovative approaches in its mission of serving the federal Judiciary and the dedicated people who work for the Third Branch of government.

The second report, the 2016 Judicial Business of the United States Courts, provides statistical tables about federal cases filed by circuit, district, and offense or nature of suit, among many other topics. A multi-year comparison of judicial caseload indicators is included.

The reports fulfill the statutory requirement for the AO to report annually on its activities and the state of business of the U.S. courts.
