Supreme Court Unveils New Website


The Supreme Court has finally unveiled the new website that we’ve been known about for almost a year. The website’s new address is http://supremecourt.gov instead of http://supremecourtus.gov (although the old address will still reroute you to the website until June 1.)

The new site definitely has an visual appeal that was lacking with the old site but it doesn’t give us any new information. In a press release, the Court mentions that further changes are forthcoming. In the last few years the Court has taken huge steps forward in releasing more informative transcripts and enhancing the information that makes its way to the website. With that in mind though, the Court has always moved at a sluggish pace in getting updates to its website. Bringing the site in-house should help speed up the process of adding more information.
