The 2016 Annual Report for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri has been released, in conjunction with the Court's quadrennial Federal Practice Seminar being held Thursday, October 19 at the Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel.
The 2016 report highlights a year of increased case filing activity in both criminal and civil cases, with firearms cases and mass torts among the notable reasons for increased filings. The Court also welcomed a new Chief Judge, a new Chief Magistrate Judge, and a new Magistrate Judge in 2016.
This year's report was dedicated to the memory of US Magistrate Judge Terry I. Adelman, whose passing in 2016 was a great loss to our court community.
