Bloomberg Law for Docket Information

Bloomberg Law is a great tool to use to search for dockets. It has options to search by court, keyword, docket number, party name, judge, attorney or firm, case status, and date range.

Some dockets are quite lengthy, with dozens of types of documents to sort through. In Bloomberg Law, dockets can be sorted by type, so you can pull just briefs, motions, or orders, for example.

The federal dockets are pulled from the PACER system and are included in the law school’s subscription. Some documents may need to updated; if so, click “Request” (see image).

Note: Documents on some dockets many not be available because of size or other factors.
