Seattle Times Does Magnificent Work Opening Up Sealed Court Files

I know it's an "old" story (a few months old) but it was so important that it merits mentioning here. I wanted to resurrect this story because it is exactly the kind of thing og-blog will be talking about and disseminating to a wider audience. The Seattle Times spent an enormous amount of time and money opening up court files hiding important stories that I think everyone would agree should be told. Thank you, Seattle Times.
