In 2011, Public.Resource.Org will publish a weekly release — called the Report of Current Opinions (RECOP) — of all slip and final opinions — in HTML — “of the appellate and supreme courts of the 50 [U.S.] states and the [U.S.] federal government,” according to a new post by Carl Malamud of Public.Resource.Org.
According to the post, the opinions will be licensed “under the Creative Commons CC-Zero License and will include full star pagination.”
According to the post, this effort is a joint project between Public.Resource.Org and Fastcase.
Participants in the Law.gov legal open government data movement will contribute to this project by “perform[ing] initial post-processing of the raw HTML data, including such tasks as privacy audits, conversion to XHTML, and tagging for style, content, and metadata.”
