Updated Term Case Index

I’ve updated the 2008 Term Case Index to reflect today’s opinion. With the opinions issued today, the Court’s total number of written opinions comes to 15, but that takes into account the 3 per curiam opinions that were decided without being docketed for oral arguments.

The Court will likely be done accepting cases for this term after Friday’s conference. To fill the March and April sittings with two cases per day, the Court would need to accept six more cases.
