Most Courts Comply with E-Government Act
The E-Government Act of 2002 requires federal courts to provide public electronic access to specified information, including all written opinions written by the court, "in a text searchable format." The Third Branch is the Newsletter published by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. It recently reported that most federal courts have met the Act's access requirements. Several courts have, however, sent notices of deferral stating that they are unable to provide electronic access to all the required information by the April 16, 2005 deadline.
