Court begins posting most briefs.
"In 1994, we became the first court in the world to have a site on the web and we have continued to stay at the cutting edge of technology since then," said Chief Justice Charles T. Wells. "Posting still more of our briefs and orders maintains a tradition that began when we first put briefs in oral argument cases up on our website in 1996."
The briefs and orders are available from the Press Page or Clerk's Page of the court's website, located at www.flcourts.org. They include the large number of cases accepted for court review without formal argument in the courtroom. The only briefs excluded are those sealed by statute, rule or order.
Posting the briefs not only makes them instantly available worldwide, but it eliminates the $1 per-page photocopying charge that the Court Clerk's Office is required to charge under a Florida statute whenever paper copies are made.
