The Texas Tribune and Oyez® to launch multimedia site for Texas high courts

IIT Chicago Kent College of Law – “Texas will soon benefit from an online archive for its two highest courts, launched through a partnership between The Texas Tribune and Oyez®, a free law project at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law, with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Amidst a scarcity of news coverage about law, the partnership between The Texas Tribune and Oyez will increase public access to the cases before the Supreme Court of Texas and Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This offers more opportunities for in-depth reporting and research on the state’s judicial system…The site will go live in late summer 2014 and offer case summaries written for a non-legal audience. The multimedia resource will include opinions, transcript-synchronized videos of oral arguments, justice biographies and decision information. Fundraising is also underway to provide Spanish translations of case information…The partnership is part of a larger initiative to expand Oyez’s successful U.S. Supreme Court site to all federal appellate and state supreme courts. The Knight Foundation has funded Oyez’s efforts in Texas, as well as in California, New York, Florida and Illinois, covering one-third of the U.S. population.”
