Do you know if there are any attorneys in the group?  Several years  
ago, the empirical  legal studies group discussed standardizing  
databases to make research easier, but I don';t think anyone migrated  
to linked datasets.

PACER has all the federal courts online for each circuit and district  
court and appellate courts.  IT is quite inexpensive and they are not  
adverse to trying  things.

The federal courts are  going to be putting transcripts online for  
all cases and that will be massive word counts.  And it will be free.
