Is there a free, online database of lawsuits filed in the US? My Google-fu is no match for awesome super-powerful search engine spam...

I would like to find an online database of all lawsuits filed in the US - preferably from a free or public source. This database should be able to let me search by company being sued and by legal firm representing the plaintiff.
Unfortunately, my searches on Google lead to tons of search engine spam interspersed with paid lawsuit databases that cost hundreds of dollars for full access.
Is there no public, online record of lawsuits filed? If the answer is no, what is the best (in terms of price and performance) lawsuit database you know of?
MeFi lawyers or soon-to-be-lawyers, please hope me!
