Minor Cosmetic Changes

I’ve made some cosmetic changes to the site. Please let me know if you have trouble seeing anything or if the page doesn’t load properly. In a somewhat controversial move, I’ve expanded the page width to 1080 pixels. The new changes should put the most important information front and center. I’ve also added new social [...]

Temporary Hiatus

I’m also excited to some change on the Court because the liberal wing needs a change of pace after it’s dismal performance thus far in OT09. The biggest problem, at least [...]

DailyTweet

I set up a twitter feed for this website and you can find it at http://twitter.com/dailywrit. I don’t know how many of you are into twitter, but I’ll almost certainly update the twitter with stories that aren’t quite dailywrit-worthy and other irreverent commentary. If you’re into that kind of thing, then you should check it [...]

Term Index Updated

I’ve updated the Term Case Index to reflect the four opinions handed down this week. Earlier today I released opinion authorship statistics sorted by month. You can find the Term Index here and the authorship data here.

Provided without further comment: I will be filing a brief as amicus curiae in US v. Stevens with the Texas Amici Society, an organization I started at the University of Texas.

I filed an amicus brief this morning in Ricci v. DeStefano (07-1428, 08-328.) You can find the brief here.
