The Brazilian Federal Court (STF) Presidency achieves 100% analysis of bills of review in extraordinary appeals in civil area


In March, the Chief Justice's Office of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) reached a 100% rate of analysis of the bills of review filed against decisions of inadmissibility of extraordinary appeals in the civil area that reach the Court. The result is the outcome of initiatives by the current administration to reduce the backlog of cases and unburden the cabinets of justices so that they can focus on more complex cases with a truly constitutional vocation, in addition to performing a jurisdictional performance with speed and efficiency.

In the first three months of 2020, more than 7,000 extraordinary appeals with bill of review (ARE) were registered to the Chief Justice's Office, of which 343 were sent to their respective departments after analysis (4.6% of the total). In March, for example, the area registered the inflow of 3,437 AREs, none of which were sent to the offices without prior analysis by the Presidency, except in cases of prevention. To give an idea of the number of grievances in the STF's total collection, this class of cases represents 33% of the 29,000 cases that comprised the Court's collection on March 31, 2020. In addition, the grievances currently account for 56.07% of all cases received at the Supreme Court.


The automation project was designed to replace an exhaustive and reworked routine with a systematic analysis with highly effective results. With the project, all the resources that arrive at the STF are forwarded to the technical teams for analysis, including the AREs able to be distributed to other ministers of the Court.
