What happens when you connect the world's most popular free legal website with the web's most popular social reading site?

You get front row access to tons of select legal documents on Scribd.

Not familiar with Scribd? You should be. It's like "YouTube for documents" on steroids.

Introducing FindLaw's beautiful new Scribd page. It's a fresh new resource for access to free court filings, briefs, lawsuit complaints, and other breaking legal news documents. We already have nearly 12,000 followers and counting.

Both lawyers and non-lawyers can enjoy the benefits of discovering and sharing informative, thought-provoking, and often entertaining legal documents on the web. These are documents that you can read, download, or share.

For example, visitors to FindLaw's Scribd page can view the newly released birth certificate of President Obama, find the NFL lockout injunction, and even the very popular Charlie Sheen vs. 'Two and a Half Men' lawsuit. You'll also gain access to up-to-the-minute breaking legal documents, such as the Barry Bonds jury verdict and the latest 9th Circuit gay marriage ban decision.

Under the new interface, documents that FindLaw deems interesting and legally relevant are uploaded to Scribd for easier viewing and downloading. You can access FindLaw's Scribd page either by clicking the link embedded in posts within FindLaw's Courtside blog or going to

While some of these resources are available on other electronic court access services, those services usually require registration and charge per-page fees.

Access to FindLaw's Scribd legal documents are free. That's right, free.

So check it out! Once there, don't forget to "follow" us to stay informed of upcoming breaking legal news documents for your future reading pleasure.
