Your Gateway to State Trial Court Data: Discover our API Access

Access State Trial Court Data Efficiently with our API

Have you ever wished for a more efficient way to access state trial court data? We have exciting news for you. We are now providing state trial court data via our sophisticated API. From specific case information to alert management, document access, and more, our API empowers you to harness court data directly within your applications.

Explore Our API Endpoints

Our API is designed for secure and streamlined access. It requires authentication via a token and offers a variety of endpoints for diverse data needs:

  1. Manage Alerts Seamlessly – Much like our UI, you can create and delete alerts with the Alerts endpoint. This gives API users complete control over active alerts.
  2. Access Detailed Case Information – Use the Case endpoint to look up specific information such as Case Number, Attorneys, Documents, Events, Parties, and Refresh status for a case. This feature mirrors the case information in our UI.   
  3. Handle Document Requests & Purchases – The Documents endpoint is dedicated to document-related activities like downloading, requesting, and purchasing, akin to our UI’s document pages.
  4. Learn About Judges – The Judges endpoint is similar to judge bio pages in our UI, providing valuable insights about the presiding authority.
  5. Review Rulings – Rulings endpoint allows you to access data similar to a ruling page in our UI. 
  6. Efficient Search Capabilities – The Search endpoint supports Boolean and query searching identical to our Smart Search functionality. It also allows filtering, sorting, and covers state-level data for Cases, Documents, and Rulings.  
  7. Monitor Usage – The Usage endpoint returns API usage stats for the current billing cycle.
  8. Webhook Management – The Webhooks endpoint allows management of webhooks for notifications from refreshes and alerts.

Note: Responses may return additional tokens for seeing specific case information, the next page of results, etc.  As well, we do not send emails to API users, but instead require webhooks for document purchase and alert notifications.

API and UI Subscriptions: Separate but Powerful

Our API subscriptions are completely independent of UI subscriptions. This means that document requests, purchases, content views, and activities performed in our UI will not be tracked on the usage endpoint in our API. API subscriptions are billed on the first of the month.
