The Supreme Court's docket is like an agenda of cases to be heard during a particular Term (cases are usually argued two weeks per month, between the first Monday in October and the end of April).

The docket contains information that helps justices, parties to the case and the public quickly locate important information about the case, such as case name, docket number(s), status, etc.

The website On the Docket (see Related Links, below) has a one or more pages dedicated to the docket of Supreme Court Terms from 2000 through the present (2009). Information is still being compiled for the current Term, so this page will change as the schedule is updated and more data becomes available.

Information provided:

  1. Case name
  2. Docket number
  3. Date argued
  4. Date decided
  5. Court appealed from
  6. Outcome of case
  7. Vote count
  8. Author of official opinion
  9. Topic(s) of case

This particular website also include brief new items related to the matters before the Court. The Supreme Court of the United States maintains its own website (Related Links) that shows a less detailed docket, but also offers a variety of materials not found elsewhere.
