Note regarding the First Circuit:
Judge Michael Boudin took senior status on June 1, 2013 leaving one seat vacant - thus leaving the Democrats with the majority of ‘active’ judicial seats on the First Circuit.

Note:
The numbers up above do not include the semi-retired judges that continue to serve on senior status and hear cases from time to time.
Regarding only the senior status judges: 11 of the circuits have a Republican majority and 2 of the circuits have a Democratic majority.
