Opinions of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit

As a recognized backup archive for the United States Court for the Third Circuit, Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law maintains digital copies of all opinions filed by the Court since May of 1994. New opinions are added monthly.

NOTE: Most opinions are marked "Precedential" or "Non-Precedential", either on the cover page, or somewhere on the first page of the opinion. Non-Precedential Opinions are only binding upon the parties involved, and should not be cited or relied upon for the legal principles stated within.

Also, even precedential opinions may have been overruled since the time the case was published. The legal validity of any of these opinions should be checked with a citator (e.g. Lexis' Shepard's or Westlaw's KeyCite)
