Didn't Expect This: Lieberman Asks Why US Court Documents Aren't Free To The Public
from the did-he-really-just-say-that? dept
Well here's one that I totally did not expect to see: Senator Joe Lieberman is asking why US court documents are locked up behind PACER's paywall. It's an excellent question. These documents are in the public domain and should be available to everyone. Folks like Carl Malamud are trying to make it happen, but it's still surprising to see Lieberman realize that this is a big issue.
