Texas Tribune and Oyez Launching Texas Courts Online Archive This Summer
From a Texas Tribune Article:
Here at The Texas Tribune, we’re committed to covering Texas courts and to providing our readers with great sources of public data.
This summer, we’ll merge those two interests, rolling out an online archive for Texas’ two highest courts in partnership with Oyez — a free law project at the IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law — and the Knight Foundation.
The site will go live in late summer 2014 and offer case summaries written for a non-legal audience. The multimedia resource will include opinions, transcript-synchronized videos of oral arguments, justice biographies and decision information. Fundraising is also underway to provide Spanish translations of case information.
The partnership is part of a larger initiative to expand Oyez’s successful U.S. Supreme Court site to all federal appellate and state supreme courts. The Knight Foundation has funded Oyez’s efforts in Texas, as well as in California, New York, Florida and Illinois, covering one-third of the U.S. population.
