Mass. Supreme Court Website Down After Failing to Renew Domain Name

The website that posts opinions of Massachusetts appellate courts was shut down this morning because no one renewed the site’s domain name. The domain name for the site, massreports.com, expired Nov. 8, reports The Boston Globe.

The site is jointly operated by the state and West legal publishing. It provides access to opinions of the Supreme Judicial Court and the Appeals Court.

SJC Reporter of Decisions C. Clifford Allen told The Globe that he noticed this morning that the site was down and was replaced by a notice, “massreports.com expired on 11/08/2010 and is pending renewal or deletion.”
