Free Law Project – Our Financial Disclosure Database is Now Available to All

“Two weeks ago, the Wall Street Journal published their blockbuster report detailing over 100 judges that had likely violated the Ethics in Government act.

  • Over 1.5 million investment records.
  • Around 12,000 sources of income outside of regular investments.
  • More than 1,700 gifts received by federal judges. And a lot more. We have made a huge effort to gather every possible disclosure. Read our coverage page for caveats and details.  Starting today, this data is available in two new ways. First, we have integrated this data into the CourtListener website, where you can look up any judge and see their disclosures. For every judge that you look up, you will see a detailed page with all the data we have extracted, including their investments, gifts, spousal income, other sources of income and more…”
