Trial Court Opinions on Westlaw

Westlaw currently offers databases of trial court orders; look for significant trial court opinions to become available soon.

In an open letter to the American Judges Association, published in Court Review, a content acqusitions manager from West encourages judges to subject significant rules and noteworthy cases for inclusion in Westlaw's Trial Opinions database.

We are primarily interested in publishing opinions and selected orders that contain substantive legal reasoning on important issues for your court, your jurisdiction, or Westlaw customers. In exchange for your willingness to let us know about your significant orders and opinions, we will make the state trial orders database for your state available on Westlaw to you free of charge.

44 Ct. Rev. 107 (2008).
