The U.S. Supreme court made an historic first a few months ago posting video footage on the Internet to go along with the opinion in the case, Scott v. Harris. (Alternatively visit the site here and see Scott v. Harris on April 30.) The particulars of the case are a police chase which resulted in the pursued being severely injured and suing the police. The chase was caught on video and the U.S.S.C. posted the video along with the opinion. One of the interesting aspects from the posting of this video is that, when posted it was viewed so widely, that it apparently caused the Supreme Court site to crash.
With apologies to the Buggles:
“I read you in the SC reports back in Eighty Two
Lying awake intent at reading all through you.
If I was young it didn’t stop you coming through.”
You were the first one.
You were the last one….
