Subject:   Supreme Court Web

The <http://www.supremecourtus.gov> URL did not work for me just now
(overload?), but you can go to <http://oyez.nwu.edu/> and get "Bush v.
Palm Beach County Canvassing Board" as the top link. --PJK

(from NewsScan Daily,  1 December 2000)

As a byproduct of the intense interest in the Presidential election
dispute  now being heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Court has
changed the rules  used to manage its official Web site
<http://www.supremecourtus.gov>. For  the first time, a transcript
will be posted within hours of oral arguments  made by the various
protagonists in the case. Legal scholars throughout the  country are
hailing this new development. Jerry Goldman, a professor at 
Northwestern University , articulated this sentiment by saying: "On
the one  hand, this is an exceptional situation because the election
case is so  important. But an exceptional situation can become the
rule." Goldman is  the director of the Oyez project, a Web site
offering audio recordings of  hundreds of Supreme Court oral
arguments." (New York Times 1 Dec 2000)
