After working so hard students deserve to sit back, relax and enjoy a book unrelated to law. Well, mostly unrelated to law. Check out the Library's summer book displays!
Fun in the Sun:

Behold, the History Book Display:

An article today from the legal blog Justia called, On PACER and FDSys, points to a recent press release from the US Courts website that describes a pilot project of 12 courts that will provide free public access to court opinions through FDSys (the search engine for government documents). The article also has an excellent explanation of what you can search for on PACER, and discusses how PACER is not exactly free.
The pilot project does not include any courts in Arizona, but hey, at least they're trying!
Those who have taken my SRU workshop on FireFox Legal Add-ons will be especially interested in this development, and how it could effect RECAP!
