Monitoring the Supreme Court

I don’t know if the SEC will appeal the proxy access decision to the U.S.Supreme Court but if they do, or if you are following other issues that go before that body, you might want to load up a couple of free apps for iOS and Android OS devices:

OyezToday tracks the current business of the U.S. Supreme Court in the form of abstracts in all cases granted review.

We share SCOTUS audio in a searchable format linked to transcripts. With a simple flip and tap, It is possible to identify and create clips of segments or turns to share and repurpose. We also make written opinions available shortly after release. This means that you needn’t be tethered to a computer to read the latest decisions. We will transcribe and add opinion announcements from the 2010 Term shortly after the Court releases them to the National Archives in October. The iPad version of this app offers additional features for note-taking and highlighting. We will retain and share all of the 2010 Term content as we transition to the 2011 Term on October 3.

PocketJustice focuses on the Supreme Court’s constitutional jurisprudence regardless of Term. The free version provides abstracts, voting data, searchable arguments, transcripts, and opinions in the top 100 most frequently employed cases found in con law casebooks. The full version of the app covers the entire corpus of 600+ cases identified through a survey of major con law casebooks. The FULL versions on iPhone and Android cost less than two lattes. The iPad version is a few bucks more but offers more functionality. All income supports the Oyez Project.

The application includes voting alignments and biographical sketches for all justices. PocketJustice harnesses recordings of the Court’s public proceedings to deliver hundreds of hours of oral arguments and opinion announcements. In many of these cases, PocketJustice provides synchronized, searchable transcripts identifying all speakers. This version offers information and audio for the top 100 constitutional law cases. The complete version ($4.99) provides information and audio for all 600+ constitutional law cases in the Supreme Court canon.
