Term Case Index Update

The Term Case Index for OT07 is now representative of everything the Court has handed down thus far in the term. As always, you can find it either along the top of the page or here. When the court hands down the remaining three cases from the term, I’ll post a complete statistical breakdown similar to what I did last year with the same statistics (here.)

In the meantime, don’t forget to read up on the cases coming out tomorrow: Heller, Davis, and Morgan Stanley.
