Justia Federal District Court Filings & Dockets

Although MCW is intended to be narrowly focused on court opinions and court news, there are times to make exceptions. Because it ties to MCW's expressed goal of greater transparency in the judicial process, we are pleased to announce the beta test of Justia Federal District Court Filings & Dockets.

This site, for free, allows users to search Federal District Court dockets. Searches can be performed using the name of the parties involved, the types of lawsuits, and the district court involved. Additionally, the site provides RSS syndication of new filings. The RSS syndication can be applied to the complete site, that is all new filings in all Federal district courts, or it can be limited to filings in particular district courts.

Links to the main site and to the Maryland site have now been posted in the "Links" box on the right side of the page.
