The United States Courts is pleased to announce the PACER Public information access service.
NEW DIAL-IN SERVICE
The new dial-in service allows you to retrieve electronic case summaries and docket information using your computer or terminal. Now you can have access to an electronic history of a case of interest, without having to even leave your office. This service is offered virtually around the clock.
The PACER system is available days, nights, even weekends. All active and recently closed cases are yours for the asking, without having to make repeated trips to the court to review paper records.
WHAT YOU NEED
