Finding a Brief by Docket Number
You can retrieve a brief when you know the docket number of the case for which the brief was written:
At the Home page, click Find a Brief by Docket Number.
Type the court docket number of the case in the Type a Docket Number text box, select a jurisdiction, and click GO.
For example, to retrieve briefs from a U.S. Supreme Court case, type the case's docket number (e.g., 03-358), select U.S. Supreme Court, and click GO.
If you are not already registered or signed on, you will be prompted to do so.
A list of briefs written for the case with the docket number you entered is displayed. You are not charged until you click a link to display a brief.
To print the brief, click Print Doc. See Printing Documents for details.
To retrieve a document that is cited in the retrieved document, click its hypertext link.
If your Find request retrieved a list of briefs, you can retrieve the next or previous brief in the list by clicking a Doc arrow at the bottom of the displayed brief.
