Open Law Puzzle: ABA Summit on Innovations in Law

I was invited to the American Bar Association’s National Summit for Innovations in Legal Services after writing these comments about the need for open data about the law.  I also wrote this about open data right before the Summit.  I was hoping to hear a lot about the better need for data about our courts, since most other innovations right now are revolutions in using, collecting and analyzing data.
