Q. What court case information will be included in my search results in CQ Supreme Court Collection? What court case information is included in search results for CQ SCC?

Answer

CQ Supreme Court Collection offers Case Summary pages. At the top of every Case Summary page is the Case Box Score. The top line of the box score indicates case name. The second line lists the volume of U.S. Reports that officially contains the case. If you click on the volume, you will be directly linked to the full Supreme Court Decision on FindLaw. The Case Box Score also contains the decision date and a breakdown of how the justices participated in the case, with links to their profiles. The author of the majority opinion is listed, followed by the authors of the dissenting and concurring opinions. The Case Box Score also links to the Transcript Audio when available. Below the Box Score, the case summary explains the political, social, and constitutional context of the case, the holding of the case, and the historical impact of the case.
