As one Supreme Court Justice retires and another faces confirmation hearings to fill the vacancy on the bench, you may want to check out these sites:
Thanks to the folks at Secrecy News and the Federation of American Scientists, a series of Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports on the Jurisprudence of Justice John Paul Stevens are now available for download.

The Law Library of Congress has compiled this excellent site, a compilation of resources about Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. Included are her Supreme Court briefs and the transcripts of cases she argued before the Supreme Court. Her first case, the controversial Citizens United, can be found here. You will also find links to other Web resources as well as videos of Kagan's nomination. Confirmation hearings for Kagan begin on June 28, giving you plenty of time to bone up on her background.
