DAWSON Updates

As we discussed here, the Tax Court rolled out its new case management system on December 28, 2020.  The rollout is the beginning of a process and not the end.  Today, the Court announced the first of what will probably be several announcements as new features come online.  This announcement provides information about the release of orders to the public.  Tax Court orders have long been a under observed aspect of the decision making of the Court.  Starting almost 10 years ago, the Court made these orders public and searchable.  The search feature is important for those wanting to track a specific issue or follow orders of a specific judge.  While orders do not create precedent, we found them sufficiently important to start the designated order feature here a few years back.  We look forward to the ability to track orders going forward in the same easy to search and free to all aspect of the Court’s online presence that greatly outperforms PACER.

  1. Will you be able to track the number of ethics complaint that have no action taken. Over a 10 year period 5 out of 9716 complaints had action taken by Federal Judiciary

  2. Docket searches with DAWSON no longer include information about either parties’ counsel. This is a step backwards and hopefully will be fixed soon.

Comment Policy: While we all have years of experience as practitioners and attorneys, and while Keith and Les have taught for many years, we think our work is better when we generate input from others. That is one of the reasons we solicit guest posts (and also because of the time it takes to write what we think are high quality posts). Involvement from others makes our site better. That is why we have kept our site open to comments.

If you want to make a public comment, you must identify yourself (using your first and last name) and register by including your email. If you do not, we will remove your comment. In a comment, if you disagree with or intend to criticize someone (such as the poster, another commenter, a party or counsel in a case), you must do so in a respectful manner. We reserve the right to delete comments. If your comment is obnoxious, mean-spirited or violates our sense of decency we will remove the comment. While you have the right to say what you want, you do not have the right to say what you want on our blog.
