District Court Opinions

Welcome to the Court’s new Opinions Landing Page. 

District Court opinions are available online from the Government Publishing Office (GPO) free of charge.  Please visit the Government Publishing Office website here to view court opinions issued by judicial officers for the United States District Court for the District of Maine. The United States Courts Opinions (USCOURTS) collection is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Government Publishing Office and the Administrative Office of the United States Courts to provide public access to opinions from selected United States appellate, district, and bankruptcy courts. The content of this collection dates back to approximately April 2005, though searchable electronic holdings for some courts may be incomplete for this earlier time period.

Once an opinion is located, all associated opinions within the same case can be accessed from the opinion's More Information page.
