About USA v. WikiLeaks

USA v. WikiLeaks is an archive of legal documents related to the WikiLeaks grand jury investigation, Manning's trial, and other related cases. It is meant to provide a record of the investigation and prosecution of WikiLeaks across cases and data sources, in a searchable and browsable format. Users can search the full text of legal documents, browse the documents mentioning particular people or organizations, or filter by jurisdiction, case, and other criteria.

This archive is still incomplete. This is in part because the WikiLeaks investigation itself is incomplete, and most of the documents are kept secret and only unsealed years later. We plan to continue to add documents about the WikiLeaks investigation, as well as additional data fields like laws and precedents cited. Additionally, we hope to expand this into a broader press freedom archive, covering both current and historical cases related to whistleblowing and freedom of the press.


This project is a collaboration between Courage Foundation and Transparency Toolkit. The Manning trial data is based on Alexa O'Brien's collection of trial documents. And we would also like to thank Drake Logan for helping us prepare the documents for this archive.
