Hear Ye, OYEZ to cover State Supreme Courts

OYEZ, the website long known for its coverage of the U.S. Supreme Court, plans to expand access to the proceedings of State Supreme Courts.

Through a grant from the Open Government project sponsored by the Knight Foundation, the OYEZ Project will enlarge its free online archive of transcripts, audio recordings, news and analysis of court proceedings and decisions.

The plan is to begin with five states: California, Florida, Illinois, New York and Texas and grow from there.

This expansion is in keeping with OYEZ's longstanding mission of promoting transparency and open government.

Another article about OYEZ's planned expansion may be viewed on the National Law Journal website.
