ABSTRACT
The article discusses the influence of state constitutional content on the business of state supreme courts in issues concerning civil appeals. Less agenda space to civil cases is given by state supreme courts in instances where state constitutions are framework-oriented, state court systems have intermediate appellate courts, and state with unified high courts. Wide latitude is provided for state supreme courts to structure their docket, in the presence of lower appellate courts.
