How do I know which judges/justices will decide my appeal?

California:  Cases are randomly assigned to a panel of three judges (called “justices”) from the appellate division where your case is assigned.  California’s districts and divisions differ as to when the justices that will decide your appeal are publicized.

Federal: Cases are randomly assigned to panels of three judges. The names of the judges on the panel are released to the public on the Monday of the week before oral argument.
