PACER is the fee-based system for district and circuit court opinions and filings.
Ways to save money getting documents from the PACER system:
- Use the Recap website. It is incomplete, but it is free.
- Download the Recap browser plug-in. This will enable you to use the Recap database for documents it has, and if you pay for a document, Recap will add it to the database and the next Recap user will not need to pay for it.
- Fee Waivers and Fee Exemptions:
- FEDERAL DEPOSITORY LIBRARIES ONLY: The FDLP's PACER: Access and Education Program gives participating libraries a credit towards the library’s PACER bill in exchange for the library educating library users about PACER.
