Possible restoration of PACER docs

Reposted from the AALL Advocacy listserv-

The Washington Post reports this afternoon that the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts has a plan to restore online access to the PACER documents that were removed.  The full article can be found here:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/09/19/online-court-archive-pacer-says-it-will-restore-access-to-missing-records/

The GRC will be following up with the AO’s office to clarify what is being reported here, including whether or not just the docket sheets, or the entire case files, will be made available.  Stay tuned for more developments.
