I’ve got to admit – it’s been a while since I’ve followed Supreme Court cases for the sake of themselves. For the most part, my interest with the Supreme Court has been limited to FCC-related issues (and the occasional 4th Amendment case). So I’ve not been on the law blogs for years. But this DC v. Heller case has interested me for a while, and I’ve been edging back into the law blogs (believe me, this will not turn into one). I’m *really* impressed by Scotusblog, which seems to be a joint project between the lawyers at Akin Gump and Howe & Russell. It’s easy to read, well laid out, and everything you want to know is right there. I know it’s a bit of a late recommendation, given that this is the last day of the term, but if you ever get interested in a case pending before the Supreme Court, go to Scotusblog.
(I’m following the “live blog” there right now, and they’ve got a little survey going on, asking who the viewership is, in real time. 95% are there because of Heller. (Oh, look. Davis v. FEC was reversed and remanded – there goes the Millionaire Amendment, for the moment) 18% are lawyers. 16% are law students. 65% are NRA members. 27% own 2 or more guns. Fascinating stuff.)
