The CourtListener RECAP resource is a gem! A joint undertaking with Free Law Project leading the way, this resource provides free searching and downloading of approximately 3.4 million PACER orders and opinions.
Where RECAP truly shines, however, is in addressing the dismal search options on PACER as well as the ability to search the full-text of all the orders and opinions it contains – something PACER has never offered.
A picture is worth a thousand words and a quick comparison of the screen captures shown below of PACER versus RECAP is stark.
