Enter FindLaw via RSS. While you won’t necessarily get the whole opinion, you can view summaries written by attorneys / editors tagged by jurisdiction and topic sent by RSS feed through your RSS reader. You can find a list of feeds at the link above. The summaries may be available within hours or within the same day of the issuance of the opinion. You can get all of the federal courts and select state courts in California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, New York and Texas.
