Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK — Jeffrey Toobin, who examined the inner workings of the U.S. Supreme Court in his best seller "The Nine," probes the court under the Obama administration in his new book.

William Thomas, senior vice president, publisher and editor in chief at Doubleday, announced Monday that Toobin's "The Oath: The Secret Struggle for the Supreme Court," will be published in 2012.

"The battle between a conservative court and a liberal president will be one of the central behind-the-scenes dramas of the Obama years," said Toobin, a staff writer for The New Yorker and a senior analyst for CNN.

"The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court" remained on The New York Times list of best sellers for more than four months.
