Upcoming Week

The Court is likely to release quite a few cases this week. There are 10 cases left in the term and the Court will release a few today and more on Wednesday or Thursday.

In case you had noticed, I am in the process of preparing the Term Case Index for the end of the term. I’ll be updating it frequently for the next few days and you can find it here. My goal is to have it complete the same afternoon the last opinions are released. We’ll see how that goes.
