GovLaunch: The New RECAP Archive – Better Public Access to U.S. Federal Court Records

Stephen Schultze and Harlan Yu, both of the Princeton University Center for Information Technology Policy, today announced (here and here) the launching of The RECAP Archive, a new Web interface to RECAP, the free database of U.S. federal court documents.

The RECAP Archive enables searching and browsing by court, case name, docket number, PACER case number, and/or date. In addition, according to Mr. Schultze’s post, The RECAP Archive has the following functions:

you can subscribe to an RSS feed for any case in order to get updates when new documents are added to the archive. We’ve also included some basic tagging features that let anybody add tags to any case.

The developers welcome feedback about The RECAP Archive.
