History of Federal Judgeships, http://www.uscourts.gov/history/contents.html

"The History of Federal Judgeships documents the process for soliciting and evaluating requests for additional appellate and district court judgeships, as well as for forwarding recommendations for these judgeships to Congress. Information on this site focuses on appellate and district court judgeships, but also includes historic information on authorized judgeships for all courts and judgeship appointments by presidents since 1933."

The site is organized into three sections:

  • Courts of Appeals
  • District Courts
  • Judgeships and Appointments

The first two sections include materials on additional authorized judgeships and chronological histories. The last section includes authorized judgeships and judgeships appointed by President, from Roosevelt to Bush II.
