Document Cloud Project

DocumentCloud is an open-source software as a service platform, operated through Thompson Reuters, that allows users to upload, analyze, annotate, collaborate on and publish primary source documents. Advocacy for Fairness in Sports has joined other journalists in sharing the documents we acquire in the course of our reporting in the interest of transparency and greater public access.

You can access documents currently contributed by Advocacy for Fairness in Sports by clicking here. At present, we have uploaded hundreds of the thousands of documents we’ve acquired and will be adding more weekly until hopefully, all have been shared, so check back frequently.

We are also in the process of linking our documents with related articles from Advocacy for Fairness in Sports, and sometimes other sources, as well as law review articles that may have been used in our research.

Documents are organized by Project (which is typically the case name), and while many projects are still in progress, and many more are being added, we want you to have access to what we’ve shared.  Our documents are organized primarily by case name.

Please help us to continue bringing the stories that no one else is reporting by making a small contribution toward our operating costs. Court documents aren’t free, and you can be a difference-maker by helping us to meet the expenses necessary to remain ad-free and provide the coverage you’ve come to expect over the past three years.
