Judgepedia

Judgepedia is an online encyclopedia that "strives to be a consummate source for authoritative articles, open and respectful discourse, and reputable research for all things judicial." Both federal and state courts are included in the resource. The state supreme court information includes a 2008 State Supreme Court Elections guide. Judgepedia is a public-access wiki, like Wikipedia, so it can be freely edited. Use with caution. That being said, it contains a lot of helpful information, including links to other sources.
