The court said Thursday it will offer online access to all of its proceedings beginning with its hearings next week in Pasadena. It's the first time a federal appeals court has provided the service.

The court is one of the few federal courts that have allowed televisions coverage of some of its hearings. It is based in San Francisco and covers nine Western states, including Oregon and California.
