Google Evidence

No, it's not a new web application for court clerks. Joel Cohen and Katherine A. Helm have an interesting new article on about a recent 2nd Circuit opinion which states that judges can take judicial notice of information published on the internet. The authors make a good point--judges who do this should probably also reveal the websites they've used and how they found those websites. As all librarians know, it is possible for very smart people to use very bad Google search terms.
