Free public access to federal court opinions through GPO’s FDsys may be coming soon. A lot of people (e.g. those “it’s all online” types who haven’t a clue) think this is easy now – ha ha ha.
But soon it may be soon. See the 3 Geeks and a Law Blog post:
“The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) and the Federal Judiciary are launching a one year pilot program providing free public access to court opinions through GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys)….” [Link to full blog post.]
Thank you to 3 Geeks and a Law blog for the story!
Hmmm … could free CRS Reports be far behind? See C-Span coverage of discussion, hosted by the Sunlight Foundation. (See also Open CRS website.)
