Infoplease Site (Summaries with background. Many assigned cases cited.)
http://www.infoplease.com/us/supreme-court/cases/

Case Briefs (Good summaries with background. Many assigned cases cited.)
http://www.casebriefs.com/



Magruder Textbook Site (Good summaries. One assigned case cited.)ttp://www.phschool.com/webcodes10/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.gotoWebCode&wcprefix=mqe&wcsuffix=0003

Wikipedia (Good summaries with background and useful links. The link below is for a particular case.)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennessee_Valley_Authority_v._Hill

ThinkQuest (Very brief summaries written by students.)
http://library.thinkquest.org/2760/cases.htm

Shpoonkle (Good summaries with background. Many assigned cases cited.)
http://www.shpoonkle.com/briefs?search=supreme+court  (It's a long list -- Use Cntrl+F to search for your case!)

Street Law (Good summaries with background. Unfortunately, no assigned cases cited.) http://www.streetlaw.org/en/landmark/home

Any major law school - the .edu sites - has information on most of these cases that is extensive. You may want to go to these via the Internet search link to the case and not to their main page, as these sites are big and a bit confusing.
