Welcome to ScotusWiki!
ScotusWiki is the companion site to SCOTUSblog.com, and it is in its early stages of development. As such, registered users currently have the ability to edit only selected pages: Jerman, v. Carlisle, McNellie, Rini, Kramer & Ulrich LPA; Astrue v. Ratliff; and Health Care Service v. Pollitt.

Cases that were granted during October Term 2009 and that will be argued beginning in October 2010 are indexed here. We will continue to add new case pages as the Court grants new petitions.

Here is a list of petitions in which the Court has called for the Solicitor General to submit a brief expressing the views of the United States. The list is incorporated in a table with the dates on which each invitation was extended and fulfilled, links to the briefs filed from the S.G.'s office, and the actions taken by the Court to deny or grant these petitions. We will continue to update the list throughout the Term.
