Analysis of Caseload
Like all courts, the Florida Supreme Court decides cases in two ways -- by order or by opinion.
Orders and opinions are both written documents. The vast majority of cases are decided by orders, as Caseload Statistics from prior years show.
Cases decided by opinion are elaborate written decisions issued by the Court that get the most public attention, even though they are only a fraction of the total cases decided each year.
