Cases for Opinions and Arguments

Order of the Supreme Court of the United States granting certiorari.

Note that the final case only has one advocate and one judge assigned. Since we have an odd number of people, I need someone to volunteer to judge an extra case. Let me know following class on Monday if you are willing to do so.

The order includes the citation for the lower-court opinion under review. The case numbers are made up.

The case you pick for your opinion must be a third case, different from the cases you are assigned to judge and argue. Two cases (City of Milwaukee and Vreeken) have separate issues and are treated as separate cases for the arguments. If you were assigned to judge or argue one issue in these cases, you may not write your opinion on the other issue.
