Supreme Court Insight: About

What is Supreme Court Insight?

Supreme Court Insight, 1975-2016, is a complete online collection of full opinions from Supreme Court argued cases, including per decision, dockets, oral arguments, joint appendices and amicus briefs. 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. This module covers content through the 2016/2017 term.

Two separate modules, Supreme Court Insight Certiorari Denied, Part 1 and Part 2 has been released.  These are online collections covering Supreme Court paid cases from 1975 through 2017/2018 terms, in which the petition for writ of certiorari (PWC) is denied.  This collection includes fully searchable PDFs of the docket, PWC, and all petition stage briefs. 

Supreme Court Insight Cert Denied modules are available as stand-alone products or fully integrated with other Supreme Court Insight modules, and offers links from case-specific records to Legislative Insight and Regulatory Insight, for entitled customers.
