Today we’re announcing a new data release for the Caselaw Access Project. This update includes:
- In-text figures and illustrations in cases. An example, from Sussman v. Cooper (1976), is below.
- Inline page numbers. You can provide a pin cite to a specific page in a case by adding
#p123to the URL, or just by clicking the page number.
- Italic formatting in case text, as detected by OCR.
See what this all looks like in practice with an example.
All of this additional data is available programmatically as well, by downloading our bulk data releases or requesting
body_format=html from our API.
This data release develops how we view and share the published U.S. caselaw made available by the Caselaw Access Project. Let us know how you’re creating new ways to see this data at firstname.lastname@example.org!
