ELSSCAP, the Emory Law School Supreme Court Advocacy Project, filed a cert. petition yesterday in Kasonso v. Holder. You can find the petition here. Last month we filed a merits-stage amicus brief in Christopher v. SmithKline Beecham Corp., which you can find here. In December we filed a cert.-stage amicus brief in Standard Investment Chartered [...]

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

Today begins my hiatus from blogging due to my role as a summer intern for a judge on the Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Don’t worry though, I’ll spend the summer fixing some background stuff on DailyWrit and I’m certain that the website will be back, better than ever, in mid-August. Additionally, I [...]

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.

Texas Amici Society

The experience of writing and filing a brief in Ricci v. DeStefano is one I will not soon forget. I had the incredible fortune of writing on the same side [...]

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.

The Supreme Court will sit again on Monday morning for the February sitting and will likey release several opinions. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, the Court has released 5-6 opinions in the first week of its February sitting over the last few years, and we have no reason to assume they won’t release [...]

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 [...]
