Swelling Supreme Court Decisions, 1995-96 through 2013-14

Alan Ball, Marquette University, at SCOWstats
"As recently as 1995-96 and 1996-97, Supreme Court decisions in Wisconsin averaged 23 pages. Thereafter, their length increased steadily until the average had more than doubled by 2007-08—and the following years continued to yield decisions approximately 100 percent longer than those of the mid-1990s."
