What I am reading 8/27/2014

Ars Technica - US courts trash a decade’s worth of online documents, shrug it off -
The US Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) has removed access to nearly a decade's worth of electronic documents from four US appeals courts and one bankruptcy court.
...
Court dockets and documents at the US Courts of Appeals for the 2nd, 7th, 11th, and Federal Circuits, as well as the Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California, were maintained with "locally developed legacy case management systems," said AOC spokesperson Karen Redmond in an e-mailed statement. Those five courts aren't compatible with the new PACER system.
