The Federal Appendix covers unpublished circuit court cases (cases not selected for publication in the Federal Reporter) from 2001 to the present. Cases are selected by West editors for inclusion in this series. 5th and 11th Circuit Court cases are not included in this series because those circuits do not submit unpublished cases for inclusion in the Federal Appendix.
Full coverage of the Federal Appendix is available on Westlaw and Lexis. It is not currently available on Fastcase.
