SCOTUSblog Launches a Wiki

The popular U.S. Supreme Court blog, SCOTUSblog,
has launched SCOTUSwiki, a collaborative web resource
where SCOTUSblog contributors, selected law students,
and legal experts are currently writing about cases set for
argument in the October sitting. Contributions for each
case set may include "detailed previews, recaps, and analyses,
as well as links to to briefs and other articles of interest."
You can also use the wiki to track updates on a case-by-case
basis (see Using the Watchlist).

SCOTUS plans to expand the site to include all 2007 October
Term cases and to archive old Supreme Court statistics and SCOTUS
blog “Petitions to Watch” entries. They are also looking at ways
to "tweak the user privileges to allow as much input as possible."
