ABSTRACT : In 1994 the Wisconsin Bar and Judicial Council together
urged the Wisconsin Supreme Court to take two dramatic steps with
the combined aim of improving access to state case law : 1) adopt
a new system of neutral citation and 2) establish a digital
archive of decisions directly available to all publishers and the
public. The recommendations set off a storm, and the Wisconsin
court deferred decision on the package.

In the years since those events, the background conditions have
shifted dramatically. Neutral citation has been endorsed by the
AALL and ABA and formally adopted in over a dozen states,
including Wisconsin. Thomson’s acquisition of the West Publishing
Company removed the principal source of opposition. Court Web
sites, non-existent in 1994, are now a standard feature of
e-government with the result that the idea of a public case
archive, open to all, no longer stretches imaginations.

With the environment seemingly so much more hospitable to the
1994 Wisconsin recommendations, one might expect to see them
widely implemented. Yet less than a handful of states have
effectively put them to work in tandem. This paper describes the
factors that came together in the right way and at the right time
in those states, along with the apparent results. It also
explores some of the reasons why they stand today as lonely
illustrations of ?best practice.?
