Supreme Court Civil Rights Cases, Petition to Decision

Con Law Prof David Achtenberg (UMKC) created an exciting new website for anyone interested in the workings of the Supreme Court on cases brought under 42 U.S.C. 1983.  The site, Petition to Decision, is a "comprehensive digital archive of all the available papers of the Supreme Court Justices dealing with selected civil rights cases."

The site currently collects material on Monell v. Dep't of Social Services, Owen v. City of Independence, Oklahoma City v. Tuttle, and Pembauer v. City of Cincinnati, with more cases scheduled starting later this fall.

Achtenberg enthusiastically agreed to support others who wish to contribute to Petition to Decision or who would like to create their own similar sites on other aspects of Con Law.

This is a terrific resource; check it out.
