Today, Stephen Schultze and Harlan Yu from the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton, and two of the creators of the Recap project, presented Recap at Yale Law School. Afterwards I had a chance to record a short video interview with Stephen Schultze about issues related to Recap and online access to government records. My hand was a little unsteady, so it’s a little Blair Witch, but think it’s an interesting interview, enjoy.

Here’s the links for the petition to improve PACER and Fedthread, both of which he discusses.

Thanks for taking the time to do this interview. It’s nice to see the issues of access and authentication getting so much attention, and Schultz does a good job of summarizing the PACER problem and the evolving solutions. And it’s always nice to have someone recognize renegade law librarians!

A great interview! Thanks for sharing this. It is good to see how RECAP creators seriously think of and solve the accessibility issues of court documents. Thanks, again.

Hey all, thanks for your encouraging comments. I wanted to note that I am just one part of the RECAP team, which also includes graduate students Harlan Yu and Tim Lee, as well as our esteemed leader Ed Felten.
