That is a media and more operation based in Pasadena, California. Its focus is civil litigation.
Its reporters, who work both full- and part-time, cover about 2,000 courthouses. Their content often contains links to original documents. In addition, Courthouse News Service provides litigation reports to subscribers. Here is how it presents itself.
Compensation ranges from about $20 per hour for part-time to the $30s for full-time. In today's media world, that's sort of a king's ransom. For instance, one shop was offering $7.50 for 600 words, which demanded research.
A sign that Courthouse News Service is becoming a player in the legal/business media is that today on the influential Abovethelaw.com site, Joe Patrice listed one of its articles. That was on the Morning Docket. The article, by Brandi Buchman, is "Mueller Seeks 30 Blank Subpoenas in Manafort Case." Here you can read it.
Of course, both the legal and business media represent glutted niches. However, like Abovethelaw.com, Courthouse News Service can scale through partnerships. Or, what's being called "bundling."
Help-wanted ads for Courthouse News Service are on Journalismjobs.com and in the state categories on Craigslist for "Writing." For example, one full-time position appeared in the Texas section on Craigslist for "writing/editing." The job was in San Antonio.
