Corrections officials said it's not necessary to keep paying an on-site paralegal and part-time lawyer now that inmates have around-the-clock access to an electronic legal library. Department of Corrections Secretary Denny Kaemingk said he sees the move as a win for taxpayers that also preserves the right of access to the courts.

Some defense lawyers said they see the switch as akin to replacing medical staff with medical manuals.
