In today's New York Times, Adam Liptak takes a look at the "mystery of the shrinking docket" -- how the Supreme Court went from reviewing about 150 cases a year in the early 1980s, to just 80 cases a year today. There are lots of theories being tossed around by scholars [...]

Earlier this year,  I actually physically wept when I heard Ruth Bader Ginsburg had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. And even though her prognosis has been great, and she's kept up a demanding schedule, I'm sure I'm not the only one thrown into a small panic when they saw that [...]

With a vote of 68-31, the Senate confirmed the nomination of Justice Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. Only Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) did not cast a vote in the confirmation, and 9 Republicans crossed the aisle to vote for Sotomayor. She is the first Hispanic to serve on the [...]

No surprise in Court's reversal of Sotomayor

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
This morning, the Supreme Court issued a ruling in the Ricci case, otherwise known as the New Haven firefighters case, reversing the lower courts decision.

Do pro sports really need drafts?

While we're waiting for the MLB draft to start later today, David Pinto makes an interesting argument:
Let teams sign whomever they like in a fixed period of time. The Yankees can’t sign everybody. Teams like Washington might be able to sign two or three very good players [...]
