Exciting News from CourtListener.com! Announcing Free PACER Docket Alerts for Journalists, Lawyers, Researchers, and the Public

CourtListener.com is one of several impressive and useful (and free) services from the Free Law Project. Highly recommended!!!

From a CourtListener.com (Provider of Free Access to PACER Dockets and Documents) Announcement by Michael Lissner:

Tod2018-08-23_16-58-45ay we are thrilled to announce the general availability of PACERDocket Alerts on CourtListener.com. Once enabled, a docket alert will send you an email whenever there is a new filing in a case in PACER. We started CourtListener in 2010 as a circuit court monitoring tool, and we could not be more excited to continue expanding on those roots with this powerful new tool.


We believe PACER Docket Alerts will be a valuable resource to journalists, researchers, lawyers, and the public as they grapple with staying up to date with the latest PACER filings.

Our goal with docket alerts is to make them as simple as possible to use. Once you have found a case you are interested in, a single click is all it takes to turn on an alert for that docket. From then on, we will send you an email as soon as we detect a new filing in that case.

For more details on how to use docket alerts, please see our help page.
