    • How does this work?

      Our servers have been running 24/7 since February 2023, reading judicial opinions and using generative AI to summarize and make them searchable using natural English.

    • Is this related to ChatGPT?

      While we use a similar AI engine to ChatGPT to summarize complex legal documents, descrybe.ai does not use ChatGPT nor does it search the internet.

    • What do you track?

      We only track what is necessary to make the tool work. We have Google Analytics so we can see general website traffic, but there's nothing to individually identify you since we don't have accounts or registration.

    • What states can I search?

      Our database includes every available state appellate and supreme court judicial opinion in the United States since January 1, 1980.

    • How current are the opinions I can search?

      It depends on the court. Some courts make their opinions available right away while others do not. descrybe.ai includes the most recent opinions available. Check the Opinion Tracker to see the latest upload date for the court you are interested in searching.

    • Why don't you have federal all federal cases?

      We are close! All available federal district and appellate court cases will be loaded and searchable by mid-May 2024.

    • Can I use these summaries in my own work?

      These summaries and the search results are for reference only to point you in the right direction for your research.

    • Why are you offering this for free?

      Because we want people to use it. There is nobody doing what we are doing and getting folks to adopt something new is always hard. So we want to make it easier.

    • Okay, but again, why for FREE?

      Well, we also believe that the AI revolution will only benefit everyone if people design it that way. So we did.

    • Who are you?

      We are a husband and wife team based in the Boston, MA area. He’s tech, she’s biz dev/marketing.
