PACER, Public Access to Court Electronic Records, is the main system through which citizens access court records.
While it beats old-fashioned couriers, it’s still not all that it could be. Documents lack verification, and access is not as open and free as it ought to be for a government service.
You, yes YOU, can help encourage the government to improve PACER by signing the Improve PACER petition.
Right now it’s just halfway to its goal of 1,000 signatories. Make sure yours is among them!
