A Word About Our Website

Welcome to the Internet portal of the United States Courts for the Ninth Circuit. This website provides access to a wealth of information about the federal courts serving nine western states and two Pacific Island jurisdictions. By default, you have landed on the home page for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Click on the tabs above for information about district and bankruptcy courts in the circuit; the Judicial Council of the Ninth Circuit, the courts’ governing body, and the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference, an annual educational program for judges, court staff and others; and the Ninth Circuit Library. We encourage you to bookmark this page on your web browser and use it whenever you need information about the federal courts of the West.
