Poverty Law Cases - Updates on significant poverty cases being considered

Given the range of legal topics covered by "poverty law," following noteworthy fed/state cases can be hard.  The Shriver Center's emailed "Poverty Law News" can be subscribed to on their website and among other things it provides "case developments of interest to poor people's advocates." 

Findlaw also has an indexed guide to cases on the U.S. Supreme Court docket (indexing is currently for the 2006 term but prior terms to 2000 are also available), with case categories such as worker's comp, labor, education, government benefits, etc... 

Finally (and I apologize for always using the same paper), the New York Time's Supreme Court page brings together the paper's coverage of U.S. Supreme Court cases and under "notable cases" there are downloadable audio files from oral arguments on the cases the editors identify as being of general interest.  Two current examples: Pay Discrimination and school district Affirmative Action

Another NYTimes item, but I thought the editorial on poverty in the U.S. today was of interest: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/17/opinion/17tue4.html?ex=1334548800&en=190bbfe4357626be&ei=5124
