And the line from a
Bloomberg Bloomberg BusinessWeek article remind me of the old joke, “Other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?”

Anyone know how to get the full text of a hearing in federal court? I know how to get rulings and filings through the PACER system, but not hearings. Any ideas?
