Ditching West Publishing Could Save Court $350K

The 9th Circuit said Thursday that it will save $350,000 over the next year by processing its opinions in-house instead of contracting that service to West Publishing. Inspiration for the cost-saving measure came from the U.S. Judicial Conference, the court said. The San Francisco-based federal appeals court has been processing its own opinions since early November. “Court staff now manage the process of converting opinions from the original word processing documents into Adobe PDF files, which are then uploaded onto the website, where they can be viewed and/or downloaded by the public,” the court said in a statement.”
