ABI’S NEW VOLO WEBSITE PROVIDES TIMELY CIRCUIT COURT CASE UPDATES


September 13, 2010, Alexandria, Va. — The American Bankruptcy Institute created the new Volo website (http://volo.abi.org/) to provide practitioners with analyses of the most timely bankruptcy decisions from the U.S. Courts of Appeal. Volo, Latin for “speed, move rapidly,” was launched as a circuit court opinion first-responder system. The site utilizes a team of editors from around the country to summarize and post new appellate opinions within 24 hours of the appellate court releasing the decision. More than 20 September opinions were posted in the initial week. The website is searchable and includes the full test of all opinions. Volo users can also subscribe to an RSS feed to receive summaries as soon as they are posted. The service is free to all ABI members.
