The Supreme Court plays a critical role in our democracy, but much of the information about how it works is not easily accessible. As a nonprofit devoted to covering the Supreme Court comprehensively, without bias and according to the highest journalistic and ethical standards, SCOTUSblog fills that gap, at no charge to our readers and without commercial sponsorship or advertisers.

Over the past 15 years, SCOTUSblog has become an essential resource for practitioners and nonlawyers interested in the Supreme Court. The blog provides detailed coverage of many of the court’s cases, along with access to all related filings. First, we feature the petitions for certiorari – that is, requests for the court to review a case on the merits – that raise significant legal questions. Second, we report on every “merits” case – the roughly 75 the court agrees to hear each year – before the court at least three times: before and after oral argument and after the decision. Third, we provide real-time and interactive coverage of the court’s opinions as they are released through a live blog, where we report on the implications of the decisions and respond to readers’ questions.

Our coverage extends beyond individual cases to look at broader trends and issues. For example, we provide a daily “round-up” of court coverage and commentary by other news outlets and websites, without regard to ideology or perspective, as well as statistics about the court. We also publish analytical pieces and special projects, focusing on everything from potential nominees to the court to the legacy of retired justices. Background materials such as a glossary of terms and a summary of Supreme Court procedure help explain the workings of the court.

I've used SCOTUSblog for a few years to follow the Supreme Court & love how they present cases from a neutral POV. Like website, no ads. Here's why the app is better than the mobile website: can easily navigate to categories, when you scroll down and click on link and then go back the website returns to top and you must click to see more links but app returns to where you were, & app easily navigates to petitions whereas mobile website has no link (must click desktop site, petitions, then term).

Pretty good. Tight, all info where it should be. It slightly misses the look and feel of the desktop version by not putting the posts first- but for late night reading it is not bad at all. Most website reduxes are pitiful- this stands on its own. Thank you.

Very good app, potentially the best for firsthand news from the Court, but for months now the calendar feature won't update which robs the app of one of its most powerful feature, insight of which cases are being heard on what day. Can this be fixed soon?
