Calling all Supreme Court buffs. A Supreme Court Fantasy League is here. FantasySCOTUS.net, created by recent George Mason University Law School graduate Josh Blackman, allows you to compete against your friends, colleagues, and adversaries to see who can best predict how the court will decide a case and which justices will vote which way. For each case, you predict:
the outcome: whether they affirm or reverse the lower court
the split: 5/4, 6/3, 7/2, 8/1, 9/0, 4-1-4, or fragmented
which justices are in the majority and which are in the minority
(for more details, see the league rules).
At the end of the term, the winner will be named Chief Justice and receive some yet-to-be-determined prize, along with "The Golden Gavel Trophy."
Registration is free for law students and unemployed attorneys, and $5/$10 for others (see registration page). You can also join or create your own league. Leagues for the top 100 law schools based on the U. S. News and World Report rankings have already been added, but you can also create your own league. Just log in and click on the leagues link to join or create a league.
