Selected Content No Longer Available on PACER

Reposted from the AALL Advocacy Discussion listserv –

The Administrative Office of U.S. Courts has announced on their website, that as of August 10, certain docket information is no longer available on PACER.  You can read the full announcement here – https://www.pacer.gov/announcements/general/webpacer.html.  Material that has been removed from PACER include docket information for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit for cases filed prior to January 1, 2010, information for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit for cases filed prior to March 1, 2012, as well as information for the 7th and 11th circuits and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California.  Relative little information has been released surrounding the removal of the docket information from PACER.

The Government Relations Office has contacted the Administrative Office of U.S. Courts for further information, and the GRO and the Government Relations Committee are working to gather more information about the circumstances surrounding the removal information and to understand options moving forward.  We will update the advocacy listserv as we are able to gather more information.
