Yesterday the US Supreme Court launched a new website – complete with a new look and new URL. The Court will now be hosting the site in-house at www.supremecourt.gov. Previously, it had been hosted by the Government Printing Office (GPO) at www.supremecourtus.gov. The GPO URL will redirect users to the new site through July 1, 2010.
Here is a screen shot of the new site:
According to a press release:
Visitors will find that the Supreme Court Web site has an updated and more user-friendly design. The site continues to provide online access to the Court’s slip opinions, orders, oral argument transcripts, schedules, Court rules, bar admission forms, and other familiar information. But it also has several new features, including enhanced search capabilities, an interactive argument calendar, improved graphics, and additional historic information. The Court plans to continue to update and expand the site’s features over time. The process of launching the new design may occur over several hours, but the new version of the Web site should be available to all users by the end of the day.
