There is no specific number of cases accepted each year. The

Court typically hears between 60-75 oral arguments per year, and

reviews approximately another 50-60 more cases on paper. The total

represents a mere 1-2% of the cases submitted on appeal, due to

limitations on the amount of work a nine-Justice Court can

handle.
