Database coverage, search tips, and other information

This database contains actions of the Supreme Court as described in their regular Monday order lists. The database begins with the first order list issued in October of 1998 and continues through the most recent order list issued by the Court.

Most importantly, order lists contain information on which cases the Court agrees to hear (cases for which the Court "grants certiorari") or decides to let stand as they were decided in a lower court (cases in which the Court "denies certiorari"). Other information contained in order lists includes a variety of decisions about procedural matters, about how cases are to be heard and argued, about the filing of briefs, and about other administrative matters.

The form above permits you to search using as much information as you know about a particular case. Putting more information into the form further restricts the search. For example:
