Ind. Decisions - More on: Transfer list for week ending February 19, 2010

Yesterday the ILB posted this entry, indicating that although I had received the transfer list, it was not in the usual MS Word format, and that I was endeavoring to obtain a usable copy.

This afternoon, after I had contacted the Clerk's Office three times thinking there had been an oversight, I received a note from the Supreme Court's PR office, informing me that they "soon" intended to make the reports available online themselves, and continuing:

Meantime, the transfer disposition report will remain in Microsft Excel format. The Clerk’s Office has decided to use this for a variety of reasons, including allowing the users of the report to sort its data easily by the criteria in which they are interested.

If you have a concern, please let me know. Otherwise, I hope you and your readers are pleased to learn we are diligently working to make the list more widely available and its data more usable by those who are interested in it. I will keep you updated on our progress.

Certainly I will look forward to it.

When I began posting the transfer lists 6 years ago, it was after talking to the Clerk at that time, telling him that the lists were important to many people, and that the ILB would be pleased to post them, if his office would send them to me each week. (The other recipients of the Clerk's mailing at the time were West and Lexis.)

The ILB has carried out its end of the bargain (although frequently it has required tracking down the week's list, or inquiring to determine whether or not there was a list that particular week). Some time ago, the ILB also made the whole body of lists searchable.

The ILB intends to continue posting the weekly transfer list for its readers, as long as it is able to obtain the list in a timely fashion.

[More] Yesterday's ILB entry now has been updated with the transfer list for the week ending Feb. 19, 2010.
