As we reported in an earlier post this week, the 8th District Appellate Court has created a new policy that it is continuing to re-think on the release of its opinions. As the Plain Dealer reports, the Court will release hard copies the day a decision is issued, but all other electronic access will be delayed 10 days for journalization of the order and potential changes that have to be made to opinions. Appeals Court Administrator Ute Vilfroy indicates that motions for reconsideration are rarely granted, such that opinions are hardly ever changed. Our Law Library has always been a recipient of the electronic opinions the day they came out, but we can always run downstairs if need be to obtain a particularly important decision when the case arises. In addition, the 8th District Court is reconsidering its new policy to perhaps allow the posting of interim decisions with a proviso that they are subject to a 10-waiting period for finality.
