Legal Bloggers Are “Go To” Source As Supreme Court Prepares Historic Rulings


The U.S. Supreme Court is poised to issue groundbreaking opinions over the next few weeks on issues from same-sex marriage to affirmative action. While casual observers will tune in to the evening news to learn about the decisions, those who are “in the know” will be checking SCOTUSblog for up-to-the minute updates.

In an age when getting the story first is even more important than getting it right, complicated legal opinions often pose problems. When the Supreme Court issued its historic decision on the Affordable Care Act last June, many national news outlets raced to get information out quickly on their websites and social media networks. As a result, some of the initial information that they reported was wrong.

With its team of legal experts, SCOTUSblog provided timely and comprehensive information. The website is completely devoted to covering the U.S. Supreme Court, from in-depth analysis of the opinions to “Plain English” summaries. The site also provides a daily “Round-up” of what has been written about the Court in the media.
