Free Law Project’s CourtListener Repository Now Accepts Bitcoin Cash

On Monday, June 17, on the Reddit forum r/btc the news broke that a popular website that focuses on US court documents and the litigation system, Courtlistener.com operated by the non-profit Free Law Project, started accepting cryptocurrency donations.

Free Law Project, a US 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, works with volunteers on building an open source, open access, legal research ecosystem. The project’s goal is to provide free access to primary legal materials, develop legal research tools, and support academic research on legal corpora.

CourtListener is a legal research website and data provider currently containing 4,184,037 legal opinions from federal, state, and specialty courts; 7,563,560 documents from the Federal PACER system; 2,036,751 minutes of oral argument recordings; and a database of 8,528 judges.

With CourtListener, lawyers, journalists, academics, and the public can research an important case, stay up to date with new opinions, or do deep analysis using raw data. On Courtlistener.com, the Free Law Project’s team publishes quality legal data attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors every month.

Besides CourtListener, Free Law Project sponsors the development of Juriscraper and RECAP.

Currencies accepted are Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum.

At first, the site accepted only Bitcoin for donations. But then r/btc moderator contacted and persuaded to add more options.

“I’ve been relying on this site a lot recently to follow developments in the Kleiman v. Wright case and I noticed that their donation page already had BTC as an option, so I decided to shoot them an email,” the r/btc moderator stated.

The Free Law Project was founded by Brian Carver and Michael Lissner and the CourtListener, which launched in 2010, has become quite popular throughout the US and gets about 700,000 to 1 million views per month according to Alexa rankings.

If you wish to support this initiative, you may do so on their donation page.
