Predicting the Supremes on FantasySCOTUS

THE ABA Journal's recent article on the Top 100 Blawgs led me to FantasySCOTUS, which bills itself as follows:
FantasySCOTUS is the Internet’s Premier Supreme Court Fantasy League. Last year, over 5,000 attorneys, law students, and other avid Supreme Court followers made predictions about all cases that the Supreme Court decided. On average, members of the league correctly predicted the cases nearly 60% of the time, and accurately predicted that Elena Kagan would be nominated as the 100th Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
Of greatest interest here, FantasySCOTUS predicts that the Supreme Court will affirm in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, a Ninth Circuit decision (sub nom. Laster v. AT&T Mobility LLC (2009)) holding that a class arbitration waiver was unconscionable and unenforceable in a class action against a telephone company. Our posts on Concepcion are here and here, and our post on Laster is here.

FantasySCOTUS has not yet published its prediction on Dukes v. Wal-Mart Stores, which we've followed pretty closely.

FantasySCOTUS is here. Create an account and log on to review past results and vote on upcoming decisions. Fun for law geeks!
