US Supreme Court Case Dockets

US Supreme Court Site

This course challenges you to identify current Supreme Court cases dealing with 1st Amendment issues.  Let us begin by searching for dockets. 

What is a Docket?  A docket is a calendar of cases awaiting action in court.  These dockets are usually accompanied by a very brief summary of the principal issues/events in the case. 

To start, go to the Supreme Court site and select Dockets, then Docket Search

Now you may do searches such as the following:

Freedom of speech
