In an interesting twist, the Arkansas Supreme Court today amended Ark. Sup. Ct. Rule 5-2 and will now allow all cases to be cited, doing away with the distinction between published and unpublished opinions. Also, the Court will make the electronic version of opinions the official form, doing away with the need to have the classic law books found on most lawyers’ shelves. Most of us just have them around for show anyway – who really reads that stuff ( besides legal nerds like me)

Here is the text of the new rule: http://courts.arkansas.gov/court_opinions/sc/2009a/20090528/published/09-540.pdf
