NY Law Journal cases go subscription-only

The New York Law Journal is the unofficial reporter for many downstate lower court opinions.   But last year the publisher decided to provide the full text of opinions only in the password-protected “Decisions” section of the paper’s web site; the print, microfilm and Lexis editions of the Journal get only summaries.   I edited the New York Law Journal and New York State — Judicial Branch entries to reflect the change and added a reference to Debbie Melnick’s article, “The New York Law Journal’s Utility as a Report of Lower Court Decisions in the 21st Century,” which discusses the background and effect of the change.
