More on OA to U.S. case law

On March 15, Carl Malamud of announced the release of a new batch of U.S. federal case law to be made OA by the project. (Thanks to Boing Boing.) Per the post at Boing Boing, the release contains
... a metric boatload of early federal case law (1880-1923), known as the First Series of the Federal Reporter. The Second and Third series were released earlier this year, as well as the "Federal Cases" which are the precursor the Federal Reporter. We're about 89% of the way towards a complete release of the Courts of Appeals archive.
The new material is here; all the available material from the case law project is here.
