Full-Text Searching of DocketBird's Entire Repository

DocketBird enables you to search its entire repository of pleadings and court orders. 

Supported Queries

DocketBird has advanced full-text search capabilities:

  • To search for an exact phrase, use double quotation marks (e.g., "summary judgment").
  • To search for a prefix, use an asterisk. For example, judg* will return documents with 'judges' and 'judgement'.
  • We also support proximity searches. For example, to find documents in which the terms "motion" and "granted" appear within 3 words of each other, you would search for motion w/3 granted. You can also use "/s" (same sentence) and "/p" (same paragraph).
  • You can mix it up as much as you want. For example: ("class action" w/20 "summary judgment") and arbitrat* and (demand or offer)
  • If you need help constructing a particularly complex query, please reach out to us. We'd be happy to help.
