When does the US Supreme Court announce decisions?

The US Supreme Court releases opinions on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, and on the third Monday of each sitting. The public is usually alerted a few days prior to an opinion being released, but the specific case name and docket number are kept secret until the formal announcement. This practice may begin as early as October of the new Term and typically ends in late June or early July of the following year.
