This week, we’re beginning our review of the Court’s history with two new areas of law: employment law on the civil side, and prosecutions for sex offenses on the criminal side.

Since 1990, the Court has decided only twenty-four cases primarily involving issues of employment law.  We review the year-by-year data below.  The Court decided four cases in 1990, two in 1991, three in 1992, one in 1994 and three in 1996.

The Court decided one case in 1997, one in 1999, two in 2001 and three in 2002.

The Court decided three cases in 2005, one per year in 2006, 2007 and 2008 and three in 2009.

The Court decided one employment law case in 2012, two in 2013 and one in 2014.

Join us back here tomorrow as we address the Court’s history with sex offense prosecutions.
