FantasySCOTUS moves to LexPredict, and will feature Katz, Bommarito, and Blackman’s prediction model

FantasySCOTUS — Josh Blackman’s prediction market for U.S. Supreme Court decisions — is now hosted by Michael Bommarito, Daniel Martin Katz, and Blackman’s firm, LexPredict, and is sponsored by Thomson Reuters, according to the service’s new About page.

The new URL for FantasySCOTUS is: https://fantasyscotus.lexpredict.com/

A new feature of FantasySCOTUS is that the crowdsourced predictions made by participants will be compared to predictions generated by Katz, Bommarito, and Blackman’s quantitative prediction model, described in their recent paper, Predicting the Behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States: A General Approach.

U.S. News has published a new article about the paper and FantasySCOTUS: Lindsey Cook: Forget Fantasy Football, Try Fantasy SCOTUS: Can man beat machine in this term’s Supreme Court decisions?

For more details, please see the FantasySCOTUS About page, the U.S. News article, and Katz et al.’s paper.
