From the time the Supreme Court hears a case, about how long til we can expect to hear a decision?

I've been following a local case, it was heard in front of the Supreme court earlier this week... I'm just wondering when to expect to hear something more...

  • Google the case and see if anything else has been updated.

  • I already checked the articles and whatnot, and can't find anything... Which is why I was wondering about a time frame. I don't want to wait to to long to look for results, but I also don't want to look every day - get my hopes up and hear nothing...

  • Generally when to SC rules on a case it's a pretty big announcement. I doubt you'd miss it.

    We usually don't hear anything from them until spring or summer though.

  • Everything I have googled so far says they have no time frame in which to present a ruling. Out of curiosity what was the case?

  • I HIGHLY doubt this is going to be something they advertise unless it's the opposite of what I'm hoping for. But I have never followed a case that went this far before, so I was wondering...

  • Sabrina...

    They take such a limited amount of cases rulings always make news. Plus, i'm sure somebody will be crying about it on CM.

  • On the average, 14-16 weeks after oral arguments. But they have taken up to 30 weeks
