My Supreme Court petition has been re-filed after correcting the “insufficiently thick covers” complained of by the clerk’s office. I also wrote a letter to the Chief Justice to politely remind him that it’s 2015 and that the Supreme Court is behind all other federal courts, save for the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) as I wrote about on My NSA Records, regarding modernizing filings and public access to court documents. Stuff like “accept electronic filings,” and “if paper filings are necessary, 8.5″ x 11″ paper should be acceptable.”
The Supreme Court should be an example to all other courts of the right way to accept filings, and instead is the most obscure. Let’s hope that John has a moment to read my letter.
