TRAC Judge Information Center – timely info on immigration courts … and more

FLASH!! See TRAC Judge Information Center in action! The Philly.com website reports today (August 1) that a Philadelphia immigration court judge has been removed from a case by the US Justice Department. See the judge’s caseload profile here in TRAC Judge Information Center.

TRAC Judge Information Center joins TRACFED as Penn Libraries databases reporting on federal government enforcement and regulatory activities and provides Penn readers with important caseload information on immigration case adjudication.

TRAC, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, uses FOIA requests to obtain administrative data from the federal courts system and from federal enforcement agencies and their administrative courts. While TRACFED reports on a half dozen federal agencies and their functions and staffing, TRAC Judge Information Center zeroes in on the federal judiciary, both in district courts and in two administrative courts.

TRAC Judge Information Center shows biographical information (birthdate and place, federal judicial service and professional career service, and education) and caseload information for individual judges handling criminal and civil cases in federal district courts, for immigration court judges operating under the US Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review, and for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) judges, who are federal district court judges appointed to the FISA court by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

While TRAC Judge Information Center’s basic tools focus on recent caseloads, the site’s integration with TRACFED’s People and Staffing : Judges module provides historical caseload coverage starting in 1986 (criminal cases) and 1992 (civil cases).

The TRAC Fellows program provides advanced data mining support to access more than two decades of sentencing data and to integrate the TRACFED data warehouse’s separate datasets.
