JOTWELL: Levy on Epps and Ortman on a SCOTUS docket lottery
The new Courts Law essay comes from Marin Levy (Duke), reviewing Daniel Epps & William Ortman, The Lottery Docket (Mich. L. Rev., forthcoming), which proposes that SCOTUS increase its docket through randomly selected cases from the courts of appeals. A fascinating idea.
Reference is made to the cert pool & the source used says only Alito doesn't use it. Saw a report Gorsuch doesn't either. Problem appears to be the source is not up to date.
