Until last year, Georgia appellate opinions were conveniently offered through a single Web site — and one which was, I believe, an official court site. Go there now and find that Georgia Supreme Court opinions stop as of Oct. 28, 2002, and Court of Appeals opinions stop as of Sept. 6, 2002. The Supreme Court now offers opinions on a different site; however, as far as I can tell, they cannot be searched. Meanwhile, the Court of Appeals has a new site, but does not have opinions at all. Instead, it provides a link to the free case-search page of LexisONE. The whole arrangement strikes me as odd and a step backwards for public access to court information.
