Thomson Reuters Launches Interactive Online Tool Covering U.S. Supreme Court
Case by Case: The U.S. Supreme Court explores each issue before the high court, with summaries, news, biographies and legal documents
New York, Dec. 13, 2011 – Thomson Reuters announced today it has launched a dynamic interactive online tool offering comprehensive coverage of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2011-12 term. Case by Case: The U.S. Supreme Court, accessed at www.reuters.com/supreme-court/2011-2012, combines original reporting from Thomson Reuters News & Insights (www.newsandinsight.com) with links to an extensive collection of analysis and legal materials, including motions, briefs and opinions, all sourced from Westlaw, the leader in legal research.
The interactive graphic, which will be updated throughout the Court’s nine-month term, delivers context needed to make sense of each case. Brief profiles of lead attorneys are included with each case summary, along with helpful background information on the lead attorney’s firm or agency.
Additional features include:
· Multiple ways to dig into the Court’s full calendar, including an interactive timeline, sortable lists and case name searches
· A color-coded index that organizes the cases by practice area, making it easier to search and sort
· An at-a-glance display of when cases are being argued and if they’ve been decided
· A “How They Decided” button that highlights how the justices voted
“We created this interactive online tool to complement our coverage of the Court,” said Amy Stevens, executive editor, Professional News. “Lawyers and non-lawyers alike can use it to better understand the important issues facing the justices this term, from intellectual property to healthcare.”
