Waldo Jaquith of the University of Virginia’s Miller Center has launched Virginia Decoded, his free, open, and user-friendly version of Virginia state statutes and court decisions.
According to the site’s welcome message:
Virginia Decoded provides Code of Virginia on one friendly website. Court decisions, legislation past and present, inline definitions, a modern API, and all of the niceties of modern website design. It’s like the expensive software lawyers use, but free and wonderful.
This is a public beta test of Virginia Decoded, which is to say that everything is under development.
According to Virginia Decoded’s “About” page:
The application programming interface for Virginia Decoded is currently in alpha testing. If you are interested in trying it out, please contact Waldo.
