OVERVIEWOFTHE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALSFOR THE TENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUITCourt StructureThe federal courts of appeals are the intermediate appellate courts between thedistrict (trial) courts and the Supreme Court of the United States. There are thirteen courtsof appeals: eleven numbered circuits (First through Eleventh), the District of ColumbiaCircuit, and the Federal Circuit. The numbered circuits, including the Tenth Circuit,provide appellate review of all cases resolved by the district courts within the geographicarea of their jurisdiction. They also decide appeals brought to them by residents of thecircuit from various administrative tribunals, including the Tax Court and agencies of thefederal government. The territorial jurisdiction of the Tenth Circuit includes the six statesof Oklahoma, Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah, plus those portions ofthe Yellowstone National Park extending into Montana and Idaho.Other federal courts also have jurisdiction of cases arising in the Tenth Circuit. TheDistrict of Columbia Circuit may hear administrative appeals from most federal agenciesregardless of the residence of the litigants. The Federal Circuit has exclusive jurisdictionover appeals of patent cases and most non-tort claims seeking monetary recovery againstthe United States government.A history of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit was publishedin 1992. Logan, Hon. James K., ed., The Federal Courts of the Tenth Circuit: A History(1992).Only the United States Supreme Court can review decisions of the Tenth Circuit.In almost all instances the Supreme Court’s review of this court’s decisions isdiscretionary. Indeed, the United States Supreme Court accepts for review less than onepercent of the Tenth Circuit’s cases. In most litigation the court of appeals is, for practicalpurposes, the court of last resort.The headquarters of the Tenth Circuit is the Byron White United States Courthouselocated at 1823 Stout Street in Denver, Colorado, named after Supreme Court Justice Byron

R. White who served on the Court from 1962 to 1993. Justice White was a Colorado nativeand was assigned as our circuit justice during his tenure on the United States SupremeCourt. Most oral arguments are heard in Denver, but the court may hear cases at any placewithin the circuit. The court holds special criminal sessions in the separate states andoccasionally will hold a full session in one of the states in the circuit.JudgesEach of the six states in the circuit has at least one active judge on the court. Thecourt is allocated twelve active judges and currently has eight senior judges. Although alljudges on the Tenth Circuit maintain chambers in the Denver courthouse, the non-Coloradojudges have their principal working chambers in their home states.The chief judge is the administrative head of the court. A judge becomes chief bybeing the circuit judge in regular active service who is both senior in commission and underthe age of sixty-five when an opening occurs. The chief judge may not serve more thanseven years or after reaching age seventy. The chief judge is also a member of the JudicialConference of the United States and presides over the annual Judicial Conference of thecircuit and over the Judicial Council of the circuit.Circuit judges are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. Theactive circuit judges are those who have entered upon the service of their office, and havenot yet taken senior status or retirement. A judge becomes eligible for senior status orretirement at age sixty-five if he or she has fifteen years of service, or at a later age whena combination of the judge’s age and service on the court (with a ten-year minimum) equalseighty. Senior judges continue as members of the court to the extent that they are willingwork on cases and the court requests their service. All senior judges of this court continueto provide valuable service to the court. It would not be possible for the court to handle itsworkload without their contribution.The current active judges (effective February 2022), in order of seniority, are: ChiefJudge Timothy M. Tymkovich of Colorado; Harris L Hartz of New Mexico; Jerome A.Holmes of Oklahoma; Scott M. Matheson, Jr. of Utah; Robert E. Bacharach of Oklahoma;Gregory A. Phillips of Wyoming; Carolyn B. McHugh of Utah; Nancy L. Moritz ofKansas, Allison H. Eid of Colorado; Joel M. Carson of New Mexico; and Veronica S.Rossman of Colorado. Senior judges (effective February 2022) are Stephanie K. Seymourof Oklahoma; Bobby R. Baldock of New Mexico; David M. Ebel of Colorado; Paul J.Kelly, Jr. of New Mexico; Mary Beck Briscoe of Kansas; Carlos F. Lucero of Colorado;Michael R. Murphy of Utah, Terrence L. O’Brien of Wyoming.2

Non-judge PersonnelAlthough the chief judge oversees all the circuit’s administration, non-judgepersonnel supervise many important activities of the circuit more directly. The CircuitExecutive, David Tighe, is in charge of most non-judicial administrative duties of thecourts within the Tenth Circuit. His specific duties include receipt of all misconductcomplaints against judges in the circuit.The Clerk of Court, Christopher M. Wolpert, is custodian of the court’s records andpapers. With the assistance of the Chief Deputy Clerk, Jane K. Castro, and a large staff inthe Clerk’s Office, he receives and accounts for monies paid to the court, initiates a docketfor each appeal, issues calendars of cases for oral argument sessions, and enters orders andopinions of the court as authorized and issued by the judges. The Clerk also has authorityto act on certain routine motions. 10th Cir. R. 27.5. The Clerk’s Office is located on thefirst floor of the Byron White United States Courthouse, 1823 Stout Street, Denver,Colorado, and is open for business from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Mountain Time, Mondaythrough Friday, except legal holidays.

The circuit library is available for use by lawyersadmitted to practice before the circuit court, and is located in the Byron Rogers UnitedStates Courthouse, 1929 Stout Street, Denver, Colorado.The Circuit Mediation Office provides mediation services in civil appeals.
