Ind. Courts - Technology improvements re Indiana appellate courts

A note went out this afternoon from the Court's Office of Technology to appellate practitioners:

Dear Appellate Counsel –

I am writing to inform you of a change in the email address used by the Clerk of the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and Tax Court to transmit orders, opinions, and notices pursuant to Appellate Rule 26(a). The email account has been upgraded, and all orders, opinions, and notices are now being sent from dispositions@courts.in.gov. Please add this address to your list of contacts or "white list” of safe senders so that your office’s spam filter will recognize the message as safe.

We have also upgraded the live webcasts of oral arguments presented in the courtrooms of the Indiana Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. Webcasts are now accessible from a wider range of devices - including iOS (iPhones, iPads) devices and Mac and Windows PCs - at http://mycourts.in.gov/arguments during the live proceeding. We are converting past oral arguments to the new format and will make replay available later this Spring.

A reader writes the ILB to express hopes that the first paragraph means that the problems some have reported in not receiving opinions and orders were legitimate and that those problems have been addressed.

As for the second paragraph, being able to watch webcasts on other than Windows computers will be great. Checking out the oral arguments page right now, I see that already you can listen to some oral arguments as podcasts via MP3 files.
