Fantasy Supreme Court

You heard of Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Football. Now there is Fantasy Supreme Court where contestants compete to be Chief Judge of Fantasy Supreme Court. From the web site:

This Fantasy League allows you to compete against your friends, colleagues, and adversaries to determine who has the greatest ability to predict the outcome of Supreme Court casesAt the end of the Term, you will be ranked against your fellow Associate Justices, and the winner will receive the venerable title of the Chief Justice of Fantasy SCOTUS.  With this title comes some to-be-determined prize, The Golden Gavel Trophy, and a feature on Josh Blackman's Blog that you can brag about to all your friends.

The more people that sign up, the more fun it will be, so please help this fledgling site and spread the word.

I hope you enjoy this Fantasy League as much as I will.

What a great idea! I just wish I had the time to play.

Like in fantasy football, there is a formula that works in fantasy which works in fantasy but does not translate into reality. For example, running backs are at a much higher premium than quarterbacks, even though GMs always build their teams from a QB when they have a high draft pick. So in fantasy, Justice Kennedy is THE Adrian Peterson, because even though he may not be the most influential in terms of lasting jurisprudence, but he is the key fifth vote. There is not even a Chris Johnson, because of the four reliably "liberal" justices and the four reliably "conservative" justices.
