News organizations often dedicate journalists to cover the issues before the courts; certainly issues before the Supreme Court. It is through the efforts of the journalists that you can quickly identify the relevant names, parties, events, dates, and issues.
There are other news organizations covering the Judicial system. Look for ones that offer balanced explanation and analysis of all sides of the issues. Knowing all sides of an issue can help you be a better advocate for your side of an issue. Be sure that opinion pieces are identified as such.
