This page includes summaries of decisions decided between May 2009
and December 2012. Decision summaries from May 2009 to April 2012
were compiled by month, with summaries from May 2012 to December 2012 complied by week.
For decisions decided from January 2013 to the
present, please visit our main Court Decisions page, or use the
search tools on the right hand side of this page.
All decisions are presented both chronologically, based on
the date of issuance, and topically. To facilitate their
review, each decision is broken down by exemption or procedural
element. Although we have designed these summaries to
reflect the key aspects of each decision, by their nature these
are summaries only, and such things as internal citations and
quotations have been omitted. Our goal is to provide readers
with an overview of the cases as they are decided during the
year, but for a complete understanding of any given case readers
are, of course, encouraged to read it in its entirety.
