Empirical SCOTUS: Which Supreme Court cases are generating the most interest?

This Supreme Court term, like the past several before it, has been slow out of the gates. It also marks another term with a new justice – this time Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The justices often find consensus both early on in a term and after a largescale change, defining or redefining their jurisprudential boundaries only later. The justices have released five decisions in argued cases so far, all of them free even from concurrences. This is a new high count for unanimous decisions without a conc...

Argument preview: Justices to consider critical-habitat designation for endangered frog

A tiny amphibian takes center stage in the first case of October 2018 term. The dusky gopher frog is native to the forested wetlands of the southern coastal United States, with a historical range from the Mississippi River in Louisiana to the Mobile River delta in Alabama. The frog breeds in ephemeral ponds – ponds that are wet for brief periods and then dry out completely – and spends the rest of its life in upland, open-canopy forests, living in burrows created by other animals. Today, the o...

Relist Watch

John Elwood forecasts the Supreme Court’s next relists.  This may be the winter of our discontent, but for Supreme Court watchers who are both a little lazy and also tied up with their day jobs, it’s a glorious summer of inactivity on the cert front. There are no conferences scheduled between January 19 and February 16. That means court watchers can spend more time with families, or engaging in worthwhile hobbies, or – best of all, enjoying their . But with so much time between conferences, ...

With Pitches for HQ2 Made, Cities Wait on Amazon’s 2018 Decision

From Portland to Pittsburgh, it’s likely that every city in the U.S. with more than 1 million people has made its case to Amazon to locate the company’s second headquarters there. At least, hopefully they have already, because today—if you haven’t heard—was the deadline to apply.
