What is Supreme Court Insight?

Supreme Court Insight is an online collection of full opinions from Supreme Court argued cases, including per curiam decisions. Includes dockets, petitions for writ of certiorari, petitioner and respondent briefs, joint appendices and amicus briefs. Transcripts of oral arguments dating back to 1955 are also included.  Content associated with each case is compiled on a dynamic page organized to facilitate understanding of the judicial process, and is also retrievable on a document by document basis.  Supreme Court Insight offers links from case-specific records to Legislative Insight and Regulatory Insight for entitled customers.

Supreme Court Insight 1933-1974 and Supreme Court Insight 1975-2016, as well as annual updates, contain the heard cases. Heard case collections also include in forma pauperis cases.

Supreme Court Insight Certiorari Denied Part 1, 1997-2017 and Supreme Court Insight Certiorari Denied Part 2, 1975-1996 contain Supreme Court paid cases in which the petition for writ of certiorari was denied.  This collection includes dockets, petitions for writ of certiorari, and all petition stage briefs, including amicus briefs.
