The Massachusetts Trial Court Law Libraries began posting the court rules on the web as eBooks in 2012.  We believe we were the first state in the nation to do so.

The rules are formatted for any mobile device so that the text flows on the screen based on the size of the display.  This is the far better choice for smaller screens than pdf, which always displays a fixed amount of text, even if you have a small screen on your device. The epub format works with Android and Apple devices, and the mobi format is for Kindle apps and devices.ebook readers

We now have posted 20 books or editions to rules and guidelines on our eBooks page here.  Carry the Rules of Civil Procedure to the courtroom.  Look up the Guide to Evidence on the fly.  The software to read these books allows you to search and make notes set bookmarks.  If you have any questions, you can always ask me at lowlaw@meganet.net.
