About United States Courts Opinions

United States Courts Opinions (USCOURTS) collection is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) and the Administrative Office of the United States Courts (AOUSC) to provide public access to opinions from selected United States appellate, district, and bankruptcy courts. The content of this collection dates back to April 2004, though searchable electronic holdings for some courts may be incomplete for this earlier time period.


The secure transfer of files to GPO from the AOUSC maintains the chain of custody, allowing GPO to authenticate the files with digital signatures.


Once an opinion is located, all associated opinions within the same case can be accessed from the opinion's More Information page.


Select National courts, such as the Court of International Trade, are also available in this collection.


GPO and the AOUSC would like your feedback on the United States Courts Opinions collection.
