This week on the Wiki
on Jan 29, 2010 at 4:35 pm
This week, our sister site, SCOTUSwiki, was updated to include a number of last weekâ€™s merits-stage filings.Â We have added newly filed merits briefs to the case pages for Lewis v. City of Chicago, Morrison v. National Australia Bank LTD, Carr v. United States, United States v. Marcus, Berghuis v. Thompkins, Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project and Humanitarian Law Project v. Holder, Hui v. Castaneda, and United States v. Oâ€™Brien.Â In addition, the Wiki now includes new amicus briefs in Lewis, Astrue v. Ratliff, Hui, Oâ€™Brien, and Barber v. Thomas.
On Monday, the Court handed down opinions in two cases â€“ Hemi Group, LLC v. City of New York and Briscoe v. Virginia â€“ and the Wiki pages for those cases have been updated to include the decisions.Â Commentary by Stanford Law Schoolâ€™s Brian Goldman, which was originally posted to the blog, was added to the Hemi Group case page as well.
Also on Monday, the Court granted certiorari in Abbott v. United States and Gould v. United States, which were consolidated for oral argument.Â The Wiki has been updated to include a case page for these matters.
This weekâ€™s blog also featured commentary on several of last weekâ€™s arguments and opinions, and several Wiki pages were updated this week to include that analysis.Â The case page for Macâ€™s Shell Service v. Shell Oil Products Co. and Shell Oil Products Co. v. Macâ€™s Shell Service now includes a post by Stanfordâ€™s Shira Liu recapping last weekâ€™s oral argument, while Harvard Law School student James Bickfordâ€™s commentary on last weekâ€™s decision in South Carolina v. North Carolina has been added to the Wiki page for that case.
As always, we have continued to update SCOTUSwiki to reflect ongoing media and blogosphere coverage of each case on the Courtâ€™s docket.Â Not surprisingly, Citizens United seems to have received by far the most attention this week, and the â€œLinks and Further Informationâ€ section on the case page reflects this focus.
