Looking for online collection of Supreme-Court briefs

This coming week, the Supreme Court will hear various cases about the Affordable Healthcare Act and whether it complies with the constitution. I'd like to study these cases in greater detail than I previously had. From our discussions of previous landmark cases, I vaguely remember that some members posted links to a webpage that listed each case on the Supreme Court's docket, together with all their paper trails so far---motions, countermotions, lower-court decisions, briefs, reply briefs, amicus briefs, you name it. For some reason, Google will n0t yield its location to me. Can someone please give me a pointer?

@Thomas,
I recall the Cornell U site of USSC decisions. It had links to all the underlying cases and decisions. Google the USS decisions and put Cornell University archive behind it for a try

@Thomas,
Are you referring to the SCOTUS blog?

After more searching, I think the page I remembered was the American Bar Association's. Thank you for helping, Farmerman and Butrflynet!

@Thomas,
I'm' so confused: Why on earth would anyone want geriatric underwear that was worn by those Justices?

@Thomas,
Do you mind me asking which cases you're going to study? Other than the obvious ones like Gonzales v. Raich and Wickard v. Fillburn.

@Cycloptichorn,
I think Thomas is looking for information on the following groundbreaking cases like Gryffindor v. Slytherin or Team Jacob v. Team Edward I bet! Or the up and coming case of Battle Royale v. the Hunger Games....

@Butrflynet,
I'd go with ScotusBlog as well. Best source not only for the briefs but also for pre-hearing and post-decision analyses of the case.

No I don't. For now, I'll just look at the ones the Supreme Court is currently hearing.

Thanks for your links, Farmerman, Butrflynet, TsarStepan, and joefromchicago. Scotusblog does look good. Another page that looks promising is the healthcare page at Oyez.org.

Oh, I see - for some reason I mis-read your post and thought you were looking for similar historical cases.

@Cycloptichorn,
No, just the history that these cases accumulated on their way up to the Supreme Court.

In a way, I'm still scratching my head that these cases even made it to the Supreme Court. I remember threads just a year or two ago where I mocked conservatives who thought the case against Obamacare has any constitutional merit. I still think it's a remarkably weak case that appeals courts should have killed unanimously. But what do you know? Here we are. Guess I wasn't as smart as I thought.
