Even the state’s courts are turning to the Internet for publication.
As of Labor Day, the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals became the official publisher of its own opinions.
The official decisions will be published on the Oklahoma State Courts Network. They become official when the court’s seal of authentication are stamped upon them at the beginning of the publication.
For the past 60 years, the court has used a Minnesota publisher, the West Publishing Co., to print its opinions.
The plan was originally set to take effect in January, but went through a number of revisions before the court released its order Aug. 26.
It is not the first state court to begin publishing its opinions online. The state’s Supreme Court began self-publishing Jan. 1.
