PACER fee increase begins April 2012

October 3, 2011

The 2-cent increase per page to access electronic information on the Public Access to Court Electronic Records system will take effect April 1, 2012. The Judicial Conference of the United States authorized raising the fee to 10 cents a page to cover maintenance costs as well as to enhance the system.

This is the first increase in the electronic public access fee since 2005. The program is entirely funded through user fees. For more information, visit http://pacer.gov.
