Collection Status
As we indicate below, the Database now traces back to the 1946 term. Our hope is to backdate the data even further. We now have a proposal pending at the National Science Foundation, which requests funds to take the Database back to the Court's first reported decision, Georgia v. Brailsford (1792). For all cases decided with an opinion since Brailsford we intend to code and attach the existing Spaeth variables. These "new" cases will be seamlessly integrated into the existing Database.

RELEASE NOTES:
  • Data for the Roberts Court are being collected on an ongoing basis and will be published annualy shortly after the term's close.
  • Data for the Vinson Court was completed February 2011
  • Data for the Legacy Courts (1789-1946) will be released en masse in Spring of 2016.
