Apparently it takes an average of 92.65 days for the Supreme Court to publish an opinion. I compiled my data on the average time necessary for an opinion to be published into a single file that you can find here. Its a pretty sloppy looking excel spreadsheet but it really functions as an addendum to the term index that was retired from the front page just minutes ago. You can still find it here, but I’ve taken it off of the front page.

The case that took the longest was the school cases which took 206 days. The shortest was Office of Senator Mark Dayton v. Hanson at 27 days.

I did however, open up the 2007 Term Case Index. I’ve published the data (which you can find there) so you can all check that out if it pleases you.
