LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Rulings from the Nebraska Supreme Court and Appeals Court issued over the past 145 years are now available online, and new decisions will only be issued electronically.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/1Rj9cdT ) the move will make the court decisions more readily available to anyone who wants to look up a famous case or wants to research genealogy.
Before this shift, people had to visit law libraries or pay fees to legal research companies like Westlaw to find the court decisions.
Supreme Court Justice William Cassel, who worked on the project, says this is a landmark change for the court.
