LawMemo has long been a superior site for labor and employment law resources, but now it becomes a supreme site — literally — with the addition of Supreme Court Times. Covering all Supreme Court cases, this new feature compiles information and commentary into a resource that houses virtually everything you might want to know about a case.
The front page lists all cases on the court’s docket. Each case is linked to its own omnibus page. This page includes a plain-English summary of the case, the questions presented, and links to blog commentary, the lower-court opinions, the oral argument transcript, all briefs, the decision when issued, counsel for each party, and outside resources. As if all that is not enough, the site’s editor, Ross Runkel, says he will also add links to “whatever else we can think of.” In short, a supreme site for the Supreme Court.
“Today, we’re introducing a new feature to the blog: podcasts. Every week or two, we will record and post a 5-7 minute segment on a topic that seems amenable to a recording. A principal use of podcasts will be to have guests appear on the blog.”
The most recent installment of the legal affairs podcast Coast to Coast reviews the just-completed Supreme Court term. We have two veteran court watchers as guests: Tony Mauro, Supreme Court reporter for Legal Times and American Lawyer Media, and Rex S. Heinke, head of the national appellate and litigation strategy group of Akin Gump Straus Hauer and Feld. I have more details in my post at Legal Blog Watch.

The Boston Globe’s Sacha Pfeiffer tells the story of how Peter D. Enrich, “a mild-mannered, 55-year-old philosophy teacher-turned-law professor,” found himself in the Supreme Court yesterday taking on DaimlerChrysler, the state of Ohio and others: “Professor leads small group in battle with legal giants.”
Coast to Coast this week looks at military recruiting at law schools and the case argued earlier this week before the Supreme Court, Rumsfeld v. FAIR. Our guest today was Lara Schwartz, chief legislative counsel for Human Rights Campaign, an organization devoted to promoting lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender equal rights.
