EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
This analysis was very interesting and not what I expected. I found out that the first and second judge of the Domestic Relations Court were very consistent in terms of probability of appeal and probability of reversal. The third and fourth judges ranked the same all the way across the board. All of the judges had many cases but overall I think that the Common Pleas Court is the court that makes the most mistakes. I think this because they basically had the same amount of cases as the other courts did but had many more appeals.

i.INTRODUCTION
Hamilton County judges try thousands of cases each year. Some of the cases are appealed and of those cases, some are reversed. There are 182,908 cases handled by 38 judges in 3 different courts (Common Pleas Court, Domestic Relations Court, and Municipal Court). This analysis evaluates the performance of the judges. ii.DATA ANALYSIS
