Supreme Court makes Web site more mobile-friendly

The Supreme Court, which does not allow its proceedings to be televised and forbids electronic devices in the courtroom, is often portrayed as being in another era.

But the court has an active Web site that provides a visitor’s guide, electronic docket, links to current and past opinions and transcripts of its oral arguments

On June 1, the court announced, the site will be more friendly to those using mobile devices. The Web site “will now detect the mobile device being used and will automatically adjust the display based on the screen size and orientation,” the court announced.

“This website enhancement will make the court’s site easier to read on a mobile device and improve user navigation on the site.”
