Crowdsourcing SCOTUS Conference Notes

Marcia Coyle reports in the National Law Journal on @SCOTUSNotes, a crowdsourcing project to transcribe the conference notes of justices of the US Supreme Court.  “The initial focus of the project,” she reports, “is on 12,600 pages of notes taken by Justices William Brennan Jr. and Harry Blackmun in cases decided between 1959 and 1994, and overlapping notes taken by Blackmun and Brennan between 1970 and 1990.”  H/t: J.
