My habit for many years, dating back to my trial-court clerking days, is to check for newly released appellate opinions at about ten o'clock every morning. There obviously are days that I can't do this; sometimes I'm in hearings, sometimes I'm with clients, etc. When this happens I usually just catch up the next day or next week. But now for the first time I've had the unhappy experience of being unable to check for new opinions because I was in trial, and having one of those opinions actually relate to the trial that was in progress.
