This note sets out brief biographical details of the judges appointed to the Supreme Court of Appeal ('SCA') over the past three years, from December 2009 to November 2012. It draws on the curricula vitae of the justices (available at ), as well as on the author's own monitoring of JSC interviews. A statistical analysis of the number of cases heard, and judgments delivered, at the SCA by each justice is also provided. These include all cases heard as acting justices of appeal prior to appointment, and as justices of appeal after appointment. Co-authored judgments are included in the totals.
