Resource for SCOTUS Watchers: Supreme Court Times
A post on Robert Ambrogi's LawSites (to which we were alerted by the Barclay Blog) introduced us to the Supreme Court Times website, a great source for up-to-date information about cases currently on the docket of the Supreme Court of the United States. The cases are listed both alphabetically and in chronological sequence by date of oral argument. Clicking on the link to a particular case leads you to a page that provides "Plain-English descriptions; Plain-talk commentary," including a statement of the questions presented by the case as well as links to a variety of useful information. The latter include links to the lower court decision(s), oral argument transcript, official docket sheet, briefs filed in the case, and commentary on the case from the Supreme Court Times Blog. In addition, once the case has been decided, a link is provided to the full text of the actual decision.
