Ind. Courts - Court of Appeals cases did not decrease by 11% in 2013

In the State of the Judiciary address on January 15th, the Chief Justice of Indiana said:

During the past year, over 2,000 appeals were presented to the Court of Appeals (one of the highest volume and most efficient appellate courts in the country). The Indiana Tax Court received 76 new cases. And review was sought in the Supreme Court in just over 1,000 cases. Compared to last year, this represents nearly an 11% decrease in new cases for the Court of Appeals, just over an 8% decrease for the Tax Court, and almost a 3% increase for the Supreme Court.
This was an error. According to a correction made Friday to the version posted on the Court website, the language I have indicated above has now been corected to read:
...this represents over a 1% increase in new cases for the Court of Appeals
The statistics indicate the number of fully briefed COA cases in 2012 was 2,110, and in 2013 was 2,135, a 1.18% increase.
