Justia today launched a service providing free, daily summaries of federal and state court opinions. The service, daily.justia.com, covers all federal circuit courts of appeal and select state supreme courts. Additional state courts will be added in the coming weeks.

The daily summaries provide brief descriptions of each decision and are tagged by area of law. You can choose the specific courts you wish to follow. The summaries are written for Justia by lawyers.

Also available are weekly digests grouped by practice area. More than 60 practice areas are available to choose from.

To see a sample of a daily summary, click here. For a sample weekly summary, click here. To subscribe, visit the subscriptions page. For more information, see the Justia Blog.

Justia founder Tim Stanley tells me that the summaries will be shared with other publishers of free case law, such as the Legal Information Institute, to use with their services.
