Great news for Scott!

This is great news, as it unseals these transcripts so the appellate attorneys can know what went on at these hearings -- and it also makes them public record.  One would think the transcripts of all hearings would be automatically available to the appellate attorneys, but such is not the case.  Lots of hoops for them to jump through, which unnecessarily extends the time and increases the costs in filing appeals.

Record ordered unsealed
Appellant's "Application for Order Unsealing Portions of the Record on Appeal," filed on April 3, 2012, is granted.
