9CHRIS was developed and created by Eric Nystrom, who is an Associate Professor of History at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

The project would have been impossible without the efforts of the Internet Archive to digitize and make available the 9th Circuit documents.

The documents themselves were originally collected and bound over many decades by the intrepid librarians at the University of California Hastings College of the Law, to whom a second round of kudos is due for permitting these paper documents to be digitized by the Internet Archive.

9CHRIS is based on the Ikiwiki platform and is hosted on the Ikiwiki-specific hosting service
