Access to view cases and documents in CM/ECF is available to anyone
with a Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) login and password. PACER offers convenient electronic access to case file documents, listing of all case parties, reports of case related information, chronologies of events entered in the case record, claim registries, listing of new cases, judgments or case status, and a calendar of events. However, as a result of the policy recently adopted by the Judicial Conference, the public cannot view documents filed in civil Social Security Appeal cases or criminal cases.

To defray the costs of PACER and CM/ECF, the Judicial Conference has set a fee of seven cents per page for electronic court data via the internet, except for calendar information, for which there is no charge. The fee applies to all users, although cour ts may exempt certain persons, such as indigents or bankruptcy case trustees. Parties entitled to documents as part of the legal process receive a free electronic copy, although they will be charged for replacement copies, whether in paper or electronic form.
