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:

  1. At the Home page, click Find a Brief by Docket Number.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
