Where can I find dockets and specific court documents?

Some courts (e.g., the Supreme Court) and some states (e.g., New York) provide dockets for free on their websites. So, you might want to try a free web search first. 

All law students and faculty should be able to access any docket contained in PACER from Bloomberg Law. Once you have signed in to Bloomberg Law, select the Litigation & Dockets tab, then Search Dockets. 

If you cannot find the particular docket/document you are looking for in Bloomberg Law, you might first double check that it is not available on Lexis or Westlaw. If you are still having trouble, please stop by the Reference Desk or contact us via chat or the library form. 

If you are having difficulty with your Bloomberg/Lexis/Westlaw accounts, please contact Mariah Ford
