United States Reports

The bound volumes of the United States Reports contain the fourth and final generation of the Court’s opinions. See the file entitled "Information About Opinions." However, the materials collected here contain not just opinions, but the full text, from cover through index, of bound volumes 502 et seq., including all of the opinions, orders, and other materials issued for the Court’s 1991 Term and subsequent years. Additional volumes will be included here after they are published in print form.

Caution: Only the printed bound volumes of the United States Reports contain the final, official opinions of the Supreme Court of the United States. In case of discrepancies between a bound volume and the materials included here--or any other version of the same materials, whether print or electronic, official or unofficial--the printed bound volume controls.

Accessing Large Files: Users are advised to ‘right click’ on large files, such as those listed here, and save them to their hard drive. Otherwise, the files may ‘time out’ before they can be successfully loaded.
