Supreme Court ventures online

Supreme Court ventures online

APRIL 11'The Supreme Court is taking its first step online by launching a Web site.

Unlike the other branches of government, which have embraced the Internet, the Supreme Court has not had a Web presence. Beginning Monday, however, the high court will open the doors at www.supremecourtus.gov.

The site will provide access to decisions, argument calendars, schedules, rules, visitor guides and bar admission forms.

Supreme Court decisions have been available electronically only to subscribers and Cornell University's Legal Information Institute Web site, at www.law.cornell.edu.

In a recent survey by two Washington public interest groups, the Center for Democracy and Technology, and OMB Watch, Supreme Court decisions were the second most requested government document [see story at www.gcn.com/vol18_no29/community/585-1.html].
