Posner has written more than 3,300 opinions in nearly 36 years on the bench, along with scores of books. He is known for a sharp wit, clear writing and opinions that could be equally biting and humorous, with occasional references to his cats.
In his opinions, Judge Posner has consistently been critical of the Board of Immigration Appeals and the immigration courts. He has frequently been featured on this blog (here, here, here, here, for example). One of my favorite articles on his immigration jurisprudence is by Adam Cox. 74 U Chi L Rev 1671 (2007) (examining Judge Posner's jurisprudence reviewing agency adjudications in immigration cases).
