U.S. Supreme Court News:

The Supreme Court's "Shadow Docket."  This week, a bipartisan panel in the House agreed that the Court should be more transparent about significant rulings in cases on the Court's "shadow docket," and discussed potential legislation to require transparency in the voting of the Justices in such cases.  SCOTUSblog covered this with more analysis and history.

The Supreme Court's Schedule.  This week, the Court released its February Hearings List and its March Calendar.

Federal Appellate Court News:

The Juris Lab had a post this week detailing the oral argument grant rate for each federal circuit court of appeals for last year.

Appellate Practice Tips:

On #AppellateTwitter this week, David Benger had a great thread about state appellate clerkships.  It and the RTs and QTs ended up discussing advice, reading recommendations, and some discussion of the value of state appellate clerkships.
