The Cases Browse offers tools to locate more than 4,000 CQ Press summaries of major Supreme Court decisions. Summaries cover cases from October 1969 to present, and provide political, social, and constitutional context, the holding of each case, and, where appropriate, the historical impact. Each summary is accompanied by a boxscore containing the name of the case and its citation, the decision date and vote, and justice opinion alignment data. For pre-1969 years, you may find a boxscore with no summary.
