Video in Appellate Opinion: An advance in Jurisprudential Communication
Justice David Newell and the unanimous CCA for including digital media access within a recent opinion about demonstrative video in a closing argument. In an innovative application of technology in jurisprudence, the opinion includes a hyperlink so that people reading online can click to watch the video itself. The Court also created its own page devoted to media that has been introduced into the record (patterned after the United States Supreme Court’s page).
Here is the opinion:http://search.txcourts.gov/SearchMedia.aspx?MediaVersionID=2b30fe7f-576e-432e-98f9-9210639de506&coa=coscca&DT=OPINION&MediaID=59ae6b95-cd58-43ce-b3e3-43277db866ff&fbclid=IwAR14rhxRx8wsliN3nibflpHgsR3gkXWme35jYv4gSxggD1qNU5UjoIt0z2s
