Digital Audio of Federal Court Proceedings Coming to PACER

Five federal courts — two district courts and three bankruptcy courts — will participate in a pilot program to post audio files of court proceedings on PACER beginning later this summer.

The participating courts are:
-U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska
-U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
-U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maine
-U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Alabama
-U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina
