REI opening tomorrow

A year after notifying the Mercury that it were planning to open a store at Charleston Plaza in order to keep the story from coming out first in the Voice (but who's bitter?), the new REI is finally ready to go, and they've got a pretty good opening weekend planned.

Doors open at 10:00 a.m. each day, with the first 200 people through the door getting free gift certificates of $5 (or perhaps more). Among other offers, the store is serving free breakfast at 9:00 a.m., and donating $10 to the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition for every person that takes advantage of the guarded bike parking the group is providing.

I love the hookups Jon, as we're both aware. I will go in your honor.

Gasp! I just read this. What do you think? How do mere mortal non-journalists get access to the court filings to read them?

I believe this case in federal court, since the article references the DOJ and a civil rights claim. To get access to federal case files, you have to register for free online with Public Access to Court Electronic Records. http://pacer.psc.uscourts.gov/. Once you get a username and password, it's easy to search for the case you want.
