SCOTUSblog, a blog about the U.S. Supreme Court, published an interview with me on Sunlight’s proposed website redesign for the Supreme Court. Here are links to our preliminary redesign and final draft.
Judicial appropriations legislation (S. 1432 and H.R. 3170) to “provide new information technology specialist positions and for new hardware and software to support the Court’s website” has passed the House and is pending in the Senate.
Justices Breyer and Thomas testified before the House Appropriations Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee on April 23, 2009, and explained the $1 million in costs for staff, hardware, and software.
