Description The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia is widely viewed as the penultimate
court in the country, second only to the U.S. Supreme Court in influence over policy issues.
It has exclusive jurisdiction over not only appeals from the D.C. District Courts, but also over
some tax and federal regulatory agency appeals, giving it a special role. It thus establishes
precedent in areas that affect Americans in very significant ways. In addition, four of the nine
current Supreme Court Justices – Roberts, Scalia, Ginsburg, and Thomas – served as D.C.
Circuit judges when they were nominated to the Supreme Court.

February 9, 1893
27 Stat. 434

Effective January 21, 2009, the Court Security Improvement Act of 2007 will eliminate one of
the allotted 12 seats (Seat 7) on the D.C. Circuit and add a 29th seat to the Ninth Circuit.
