The article cites PlainSite as a cost reference. That surely can't be the cost of a developer, server, bandwidth etc? Free labour? Anyone know more? I know that an enerprising hacker can do a lot, but setting up a system better than another that has a $25 million budget? And would anyone care to guess what it should cost per page (ideally with some sort of cost justification)? 1c? .01c?

It should cost $0 per page. The infrastructure and maintenance for a document database of our country's tax-funded court proceedings should be so vanishingly small in relation to what we already spend on the justice system that it should approach 0.
