Startup Legalist is scraping state court records to create a unified database for case search

Founded by Eve Shang and Christian Haigh, two current Harvard undergrads, the startup is trying to become a Google for state court records. 

They are doing this by scraping these databases and aggregating the documents into one main searchable database. This takes a while – most counties and states have records going back to 1989.
