PACER FEE INCREASE - EFFECTIVE APRIL 1, 2012
Effective April 1, 2012, the Judicial Conference of the United States will increase the fee from $.08 to $.10 per page for electronic public access to court records through the PACER service. Local, state, and federal government agencies will be exempted from the increase for three years. The quarterly exemption also will be increased from $10.00 to $15.00 (PACER users who do not accrue charges of more than $15.00 in a quarterly billing cycle will not be charged). The expanded exemption means that 75 to 80 percent of all users will still pay no fees.
