About the RECAP Archive
The RECAP Archive is your portal to the documents gathered by the RECAP Firefox Extension. By using our clean search interface, you now have instant access to millions of U.S. Federal District and Bankruptcy Court documents, without charge.
The RECAP Archive is a project of the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University, developed by Jen King, Sajid Mehmood, Daniel Roberts, and Brett Lullo. The project is currently maintained by Dhruv Kapadia. Our efforts were advised by Professor Ed Felten. You can contact us at email@example.com.
Please visit the RECAP main page at recapthelaw.org for more information or to download the Firefox Extension and add to our repository.
