Another Interesting SCOTUS Case...and SCOTUS Resources

As the Supreme Court begins the new Term, now would probably be a good time to show you some of the online resources that explain the cases, arguments, and decisions.

For example, argument took place yesterday in the case of Missouri v. McNeely, which centers around the taking of blood samples in drunk driving cases.

Of course, the Supreme Court's own website has many useful materials, including argument transcripts and argument audio.  (You can find the transcript for Missouri v. McNeely online already--the audio takes longer to appear.)

SCOTUSblog has a page for every case, including many of the filings, the opinion below, and blog coverage from the writers at SCOTUS blog.  Here is the page for Missouri v. McNeely, and a recap of yesterday's argument.
