Anyone with Westlaw Access?
« on: July 05, 2012, 10:23:09 PM »
I need help fast!   I'm looking for a transcript of an oral argument.     The case is "American Civil Liberties Union v. Anita Alvarez."   Oral Agrument was held on 09/13/11 in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals (federal).   Docket # 11-1286.   Does anyone have access to Westlaw to get it for me?   Again,  I just need the transcript to the oral agrument, nothing else.   Here a link to the audio download on the Court website. I need a transcript of this. I don't have time to order it from the court (takes 30 days). http://www.ca7.uscourts.gov/fdocs/docs.fwx?caseno=11-1286&submit=showdkt&yr=11&num=1286

Please reply if you can find it.   I've looked all over the internet and can't.  Was told Westlaw most likely had it.   Thanks!

Depending on where you live, there might be a public library nearby that offers free access to West.

You could always hire an intern.  Most of them have student accounts.

In case you haven't gotten what you need, I'd suggest trying PACER, "an electronic public access service that allows users to obtain case and docket information from federal appellate, district and bankruptcy courts."  They charge 10 cents a page, but they waive the fees if one's quarterly usage is less than $15.  Here's the URL:  http://www.pacer.gov/

If in law school, your school should provide westlaw and lexis both for free with unlimited searches.
