Was Baze the most "internet friendly" SCOTUS ruling?
April 21, 2008 at 10:19 AM
The recent SCOTUS ruling on the legality of lethal injections, Baze v. Rees, was unusual in that a majority of the justices (4 out of 7) cited to Internet websites. There were a total of 13 references to online materials, with Justice Stevens citing to a law review article appearing only in its electronic format. The blog, Law School Innovation, discusses how this case may be the court's most "Internet-friendly" and represents an increasing reliance upon electronic resources in the court. The opinion of the case is available via the SCOTUS website, and this discussion is found on the blog Law School Innovation.
