TYLER, TX — A recent study finds wide variations in the amount of criminal caseloads of federal district court judges.
The results of the study were released on Sunday by Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, and show that - in some cases - the number of caseloads handled by judges even within in the same courthouse are extremely different.
The federal courthouse in Tyler makes the list of the top 25 in the nation with the widest variation of criminal caseloads.
The federal courthouse in the eastern district of Texas in Tyler ranks number 19 on the list, with 593 cases handled by one judge (Leonard Davis), and 825 by another (Michael Schneider).
