Supreme Court to allow citation to unpublished opinions
The U.S. Supreme Court has announced a rule change that would allow citation to unpublished federal opinions. While these unpublished opinions are of course widely available on Westlaw, LEXIS, and other databases, federal judges are concerned that they will now have to spend additional time polishing these opinions if they can be used as precedent and that such an expenditure of time will increase court backlogs.
