The Superior Court of Pennsylvania recently announced it has approved a policy change that, once implemented, will result in that court’s posting to the court’s website of all newly-issued, nonprecedential opinions not issued under seal, thereby providing free and easy access to all of that court’s decisions to the public, the news media and attorneys.
At present, as in the past, the Superior Court issues two different types of written opinions: (1) published opinions that the court recognizes as having precedential value and that are published by West in the Atlantic Reporter and are published online by Westlaw, Lexis and similar automated legal research services; and (2) unpublished memorandum decisions, which the court does not recognize as having precedential value and which do not appear in the Atlantic Reporter or (for the most part) on Westlaw, Lexis or similar automated legal research services.
