First Monday in October

The first Monday in October begins a term of the United States Supreme Court. The acronym for the court is SCOTUS and you can watch a docket or find an opinion on their official website. However, if you want analysis of court activities, to data mine SCOTUS case law, or to hear oral arguments check out these websites.

SCOTUSblog: this is an excellent site for following the court's day to day activities, commentary & analysis, transcripts of oral arguments and more.

The Supreme Court database: The Database contains over two hundred pieces of information about each case decided by the Court between the 1953 and 2008 terms. he analysis tools allow you to select and summarize cases from the Database based on your needs.

The Oyez Project: is a multimedia archive devoted to the Supreme Court of the United States and its work. It aims to be a complete and authoritative source for all audio recorded in the Court since the installation of a recording system in October 1955. The Project also provides authoritative information on all justices and offers a virtual reality 'tour' of portions of the Supreme Court building, including the chambers of some of the justices.
