Here's a touch on unpublished opinions.
California Court Opinions:
California Rules of Court Rule 8.1115 states that A...an opinion of a California Court of Appeal or superior court appellate division that is not certified for publication or ordered published must not be cited or relied on by a court or a party in any other action,@ with certain limited exceptions,

So we see that not everything in legal land ends up readily available where others may gain insight.
This is where Rod Class pulled a fast one on the court system.
When he receives Proof of Service on any of his filings, the papers get posted on-line. When he receives an Answer, it gets posted. There's a record. If something is gaged later in court, the action is already up. Doesn't matter if records are sealed. Everything preceding is already up. Doesn't matter if the action is withdrawn and disappears entirely from the available records, its already up.
Best part is this is all done by volunteers. And most of his materials are hosted off shore as well as on. Rod doesn't maintain a site. No judge can seize a domain that doesn't exist. They can't order and threaten him to remove web postings because it is beyond his control in the first place.
That's a slick tactic. And original AFAIK.
Using your brain. That's what this is all about.
