Supreme Court Cases from 1832–1978: The Making of Modern Law: U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs database includes nearly 11 million pages of records and briefs brought before the U.S. Supreme Court during the final years of Chief Justice John Marshall’s Court through the first ten years of the Warren Court. It contains scanned images, so documents appear just as they do in the printed sources. Full-text searching is available and all documents for a particular case can be retrieved with the United States Reports citation.
Dockets for Decided Cases: Some state and federal cases on Bloomberg Law, Lexis Advance, and Westlaw have links to docket sheets. Many of the underlying documents (complaint, indictment, petition for bankruptcy, motions, briefs, orders, etc.) for cases from the late 1990s–present* are available in the “Filings” tab on Westlaw and in the “Related Court Materials” link on Lexis Advance. Bloomberg Law, however, provides access to all available court documents for a case through direct links from the case’s docket sheet. *Additionally, many earlier state appellate court filings are archived on microfiche or microfilm and can be obtained through interlibrary loan from the state archives or state library.
Dockets for Pending Cases: All Federal court documents available on PACER (approximately all documents filed in the federal courts from 2006–present) are also available in the “Dockets” database on Bloomberg Law. Many state court documents are available too. However, for states without an electronic case filing system, many court documents must be obtained directly from the court.
