The clerk of the court reported that "Volumes for 1981 and before are bound and the volumes since 1981 are on microfiche.  Unfortunately, the microfiches for volumes 305 is not available.   Volumes 306 and higher are in the archives of the Supreme Court....In 21 years working here, I've never had this happen before.  This is the first request I've seen for volume 305.  Perhaps you can contact the attorneys and get the briefs that were filed."
