Paul Dooley and John Karbaf bring FindLaw newsletters to 90,000 subscribers each month. Unlike the paperboys of yesteryear, they aren't just delivering the news to the masses, they're curating it.

Dooley and Karbaf oversee production for almost 100 FindLaw newsletters, covering topics ranging from court opinions to cool jobs. The latest addition to that lineup is The Supreme Court Digest, a new offering to satisfy readers' demands for news and views about the Nine.

"We realized from our current newsletter audience that there was an insatiable demand for news and commentary related to the Supreme Court. From there, we thought we could craft a newsletter with a fresh, new look that would deliver the content our readers want: Namely, up-to-date Supreme Court happenings as well as interpretation and opinion," said Karbaf.

(It didn't hurt that FindLaw's Supreme Court Blog was already churning out extensive Supreme Court coverage.)

While FindLaw is known for providing web-based legal resources, The Supreme Court Digest combines FindLaw's internal resources with editorially-selected stories from other publications around the Web to offer readers a variety of perspectives.

"This newsletter is special to what we do at FindLaw because it really covers all our bases. It informs the reader about not only the news aspect of the rulings, but also offers an analysis of the underlying laws, and how these rulings will ultimately affect every-day living," Karbaf said.

Newsletter fodder can include everything from game-changing opinions to notable quotes to everything you never knew you needed to know about the justices' robes.

Many of FindLaw's newsletters are geared towards legal professionals, but The Supreme Court Digest was designed to have a broader appeal. Supreme Court news doesn't only apply to legal professionals - it applies to all Americans. Literally everyone, in some way, is or can be affected by how the court rules.

Could you spend hours trolling the Internet for the same information? Sure. But isn't it easier to sign up for The Supreme Court Digest and let Paul and John do the hard work for you?
