Last week, Denver hosted the annual conference of the Association of Reporters of Judicial Decisions. Perma.cc was honored to share the podium with Katie Loomis from the Michigan Reporter of Decisions office for a joint presentation. Katie provided a wonderful overview of the link rot problem from the perspective of a court insider. Adam Ziegler, Perma.cc’s Project Manager, and Kim Dulin, Director of the Innovation Lab at the Harvard Law School Library, outlined how Perma.cc can help courts contend with this problem.
Perma.cc’s collaborative work with the courts is well under way. In addition to the Michigan Supreme Court and Michigan Court of Appeals, courts in Massachusetts, Colorado and the Virgin Islands all have started using Perma.cc as well. Perma.cc is free and easy for courts to use, and we’ve worked hard to continue improving the overall experience for our court users.
We’d like to thank ARJD, and Leah Walker in particular, for inviting us to this important conference, and we look forward to doing more to help courts ensure the integrity of the web citations in their opinions.
