2,102 Appeals Filed with the OOR in 2016

The number of appeals filed in 2016 declined from 2015’s record-setting pace, but the complexity of issues presented in the cases continued to grow.

Over the past five years, the average number of cases heard by the OOR is 2,342.

Predictions are dangerous, especially when they’re printed in an annual report (and on this blog) where anyone can refer back to them very easily, but… I predict the number of cases over the next several years will remain between 2,000 and 2,500 per year.
