PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Justia, a legal media and technology company that makes legal information freely available online, today announced the addition of a free searchable database of full-text opinions and orders from civil cases heard in U.S. Federal District Courts (http://cases.justia.com/federal/district-courts/).

The Justia Federal District Court Opinions and Orders database enables users to search the full-text of opinions and orders, as well as browse decisions by venue, type of lawsuit and judge. Moreover, users can subscribe to RSS feeds for alerts of new cases by type of lawsuit, court or judge. For instance, you can subscribe to receive updates when U.S. Federal District Courts in California issue new opinions that concern copyright issues. The free database of civil decisions from Federal District Courts extends back to 2004 and is updated daily.

The decisions are also integrated with the previously available Justia Federal District Court Filings & Dockets database (http://dockets.justia.com). Users searching Federal District Court filings and dockets can now view the opinions and orders associated with a case as they search or browse the database.
