Pilot Program to Provide Internet Access to Criminal Case Files

The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts ( has announced that the Judicial Conference of the U.S. has approved a pilot program to allow 11 federal courts (10 trial and one appellate) to provide Internet access to criminal case files. (The 27-member Judicial Conference is the principal policy-making body of the federal court system.) Users can access these files (along with most civil and bankruptcy case records) through the federal courts' PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) system for 7 cents per page. Information about PACER and a list of participating courts can be found at

The Judicial Conference also agreed to allow Internet access to criminal files in high-profile cases that impose extraordinary demands on court resources. Electronic access would be permitted only if all parties consent and the trial or presiding judge of an appellate panel finds that such access is warranted.
