@big_cases

Latest filings in big federal cases.

@big_cases is an open source Twitter bot created by Brad Heath from USA Today that tweets new filings from major cases in U.S. district courts, updated every 4 minutes.

From associated GitHub repo:

The bot uses PACER RSS feeds to gather the latest filings from 74 U.S. District Courts and five federal courts of appeals and stores the docket entries in a database. It matches new filings against a preselected list of major cases, scrapes matching documents from PACER, uploads them to a DocumentCloud project and posts the results on Twitter.
