Postcard Supreme Court

So you’re one of the lucky few, whose case has made it to the U.S. Supreme Court. Indeed, your odds of getting your case to the Supreme Court are no better than winning Powerball these days. Your next step: create a website. You can parlay your luck at getting chosen by the Supreme Court and become a legal celebrity.

Over at the VC, Orin Kerr is collecting information about the websites of litigants in famous cases.

Here’s Dudley Hiibel’s website. Hiibel was the center of attention in Hiibel v. Sixth Judicial District Court, 124 S. Ct. 2451 (2004), where the Supreme Court upheld a statute requiring people to identify themselves during a stop. You can check out pictures of Hiibel and his attorneys. And you can even watch a video of the stop that gave rise to his case.

Here’s Danny Kyllo’s website. Kyllo was the defendant in Kyllo v. United States, 533 U.S. 27 (2001), where the Supreme Court held that the police needed a search warrant in order to use a thermal sensor device to detect heat patterns in people’s homes. At the website, you can see pictures of Danny Kyllo’s house. You can even buy Kyllo’s “just say no to thermal imaging” T-shirt.

Go to Orin’s post and check out the comments for more websites.
