CNN analyst and New Yorker staff writer Jeffrey Toobin has inked a deal to publish a new book about the Supreme Court and President Barack Obama with Doubleday. Entitled The Oath: The Secret Struggle for the Supreme Court, the book is scheduled for 2012 release.

Toobin hit bestseller lists with his book, The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court The Associated Press has a quote from Toobin: “The battle between a conservative court and a liberal president will be one of the central behind-the-scenes dramas of the Obama years.”

Embedded above is a video of Toobin discussing the Supreme Court on The Colbert Report. Our sibling blog TV Newser has an excellent piece about Toobin’s coverage of the Elena Kagan Supreme Court nomination hearings–detailing his “long friendship” with the Solicitor General.
