Legal Information Institute: Supreme Court

This archive from the Legal Information Institute is an excellent and frequently updated database concerning the activities of the U.S. Supreme Court. Readers may like to start with the Most Recent Decisions. Selecting any case navigates to a page featuring the Syllabus, Opinion, Concurrences, and Dissents of the Supreme Court’s most recent deliberations. In addition, readers may scout the Current awareness section, which examines decisions, orders, and case updates by date, as well as an Archive of decisions, which can be browsed by topic, author, and party. The site also features an excellent search function. For instance, typing “gay marriage” returns half a dozen important cases, including the landmark 2013 decision, United States v. Windsor, in which the court held that restricting marriage rights to heterosexual couples was unconstitutional.
