This article examines how the role of the court system in publishing legal information should be viewed in a digital, online environment. It then argues that courts should author detailed, standardized metadata for their written work product. This practice would result in immediate, identifiable improvements in free and low-cost case law databases, and may beneficially impact the next generation of AI-powered research tools as well.
