California Lawyers challenge Westlaw’s and Lexis’s posting of their briefs

A group of lawyers in California are challenging the California Supreme Court’s practice of giving briefs to Westlaw and Lexis for uploading. Lexis and Westlaw charge fees for their users to search and use the briefs, and the lawyers who write them receive no payment. This is a copyright violation, according to the California lawyers.
