Description

Washington (CNN) -- Forget about baseball, football and the Academy Awards. The hottest new fantasy-league game involves the Supreme Court. A month-old Web site called FantasySCOTUS.net allows people to predict all of the high court's pending cases. Josh Blackman, a law clerk for U.S. District Judge Kim Gibson in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, created the game in his spare time. "In the digital age, everyone has an opinion and is eager to share it," Blackman said. "They know how a case will come out, and this gives them a way to play a justice." The growing fantasy league has 2,000 members, mostly students, who can sign up for free. Professionals and other individuals can join for $10 or less.
