The Post-Gazette reports that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is going to start tweeting opinions and briefs.  Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin calls it “a logical extension of an ongoing commitment to enhance the delivery of court information and services in an efficient and cost-effective manner.”

Actually, you know what would be a logical extension to an ongoing commitment to efficient and cost-effective court services? ELECTRONIC FILING.  According to the prothonotary, you may file on CD (CD! Are you kidding me? Why not file an 8-track tape of yourself reading the brief aloud?) along with the hard copies of your brief, but that is as high-tech as it gets around here.
