8th Circuit (incl. bankruptcy)

The United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit sits in St. Louis Missouri. The Courthouse is the Thomas F. Eagleton United States Courthouse. In addition to the Court of Appeals, the Eighth Circuit spans over 6-US states, including: Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota. Although the Eighth Circuit originally had additional states situated in the geographic-region, Congress passed legislation which broke the Circuit into 2-separate circuits, which is known as the Tenth Circuit today.

The courthouses in each state are further broken down into regions. The Eastern District court in Arkansas sits in Little Rock and Western District court is in Fort Smith. The Northern District court in Iowa is in Cedar Rapids, and Southern District is in Des Moines, IA. The District of Minnesota court sits in Minneapolis, the Eastern District court is in St. Louis (Appeals court), and Western District is in Kansas City, MO. The District of Nebraska court sits in Omaha. The Northern District court in South Dakota is in Fargo, and Southern District court is in Sioux Falls, SD.

Currently there are 11 active judges on the bench in the Eighth Circuit and 7 senior judges. The Chief Justice is Lavenski Smith, and the Circuit Justice is Neil Gorsuch. A number of precedent-setting decisions have come from the Eighth District. Frosty Treats Inc. v Sony Computer Entertainment of America, Inc. (2005) is one of those cases. In the trademark case, the court held that Frosty Treats (largest US ice cream company) was not “distinctive” or “famous enough” to receive immunity protections from being used in a violent video game.

The National Law Review covers cases such as Frosty v Sony which deal with trademarks and branding, as well as several other categories and case law. Bankruptcy proceedings, tax related cases, government actions, indemnity cases, state actions, appointments, and State and Federal agency news. The National Law Review also covers the latest news pertaining to legislation, patents, election, and general-information in the legal community.
