Preliminary Prints

Volume 581 Part 2 (2016 Term – 1391K)

The opinions of the Supreme Court of the United States are published officially in the United States Reports. See 28 U. S. C. §411. In addition to the Court’s opinions, a volume of the U. S. Reports usually contains a roster of Justices and officers of the Court during the Term; an allotment of Justices by circuit; announcements of Justices’ investitures and retirements; memorial proceedings for deceased Justices; a cumulative table of cases reported; orders in cases decided in summary fashion; reprints of amendments to the Supreme Court’s Rules and the various sets of Federal Rules of Procedure; a topical index; and a statistical table summarizing case activity for the past three Court Terms. Prior to final publication in the U. S. Reports, the Court releases soft-cover “preliminary prints” that contain the same materials and features as the U. S. Reports. Two or three preliminary prints will eventually be combined into a single bound U. S. Reports volume.
