Oral dissents identify some of the Supreme Court justices’ most deeply held minority opinions. While print dissents are published routinely, oral dissents are not systematically tracked. This article presents the results of our AALL grant-funded project to locate oral dissents issued from October 1969 through today, discusses the methodology used in compiling our list, and describes various aspects of oral dissents that may make some more difficult to find. This project was funded by the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) Research Fund: An Endowment Established by Lexis-Nexis.
The appendix is quite handy for your reference desk as it contains a list of the oral dissents from the October Term of 1969 to the present. Just in case you were wondering: the authors found 117 oral dissents.
