FantasySCOTUS is Back! Win Cash Prizes, Beat {Marshall}+, and Unlock SCOTUS Badges

October 14th, 2014

We have launched the 6th Season of FantasySCOTUS, and this is the best competition yet. This year, FantasySCOTUS is sponsored by Thomson Reuters, and is operated by my colleagues at LexPredict, a legal analytics and service provider. If you’ve played before, sign up and play again. If you haven’t we have three new reasons to join.

1. Cash Prizes

For the first time, thanks to our good friends at Thomson Reuters, we are offering significant cash prizes,  sponsored by Thomson Reuters.

  • Grand Prize – $10,000
  • 1st Prize – $5,000
  • 2nd Prize – $2,000
  • 3rd Prize – $1,000
  • Honorable Mention (3) – $500

Beyond the grand prizes addition, we will offer Amazon gift cards, between $25 and $100, for making the most predictions with the highest accuracy.

2. Man v. Machine Competition

Marshall-AnimatedMy colleagues developed a revolutionary algorithm that can accurately predict Supreme Court cases. We call it {MARSHALL}+, after Chief Justice John Marshall.  This Term, {MARSHALL}will be competing against the players of FantasySCOTUS in a legal Man v. Machine contest.  It’s like IBM’s Watson on Jeopardy, except with the Supreme Court.  And we need your help.  By making predictions in all of the cases this term, you will contribute to the most sophisticated Supreme Court forecasting project of all time – with a shot at winning cash prizes to boot.

You can see all of our predictions in real time at the Prediction Tracker.

3. Unlock SCOTUS Justice Badges

If cash prizes and beating a computer were not enough incentives, if you make predictions, you can unlock your very own Justice Badges. Here are the badges for Chief Justice Roberts, Justice Scalia, Justice Kennedy, and (almost) everyone’s favorite, Justice Ginsburg.
