PACER ACCESS TO PRE-2012 CASE INFORMATION
Access to case information and documents in cases docketed prior to March 1, 2012 is now available on PACER. Using our “Search Cases Filed Before March 1, 2012” link, you again have access to cases filed from 1996 through February 2012. Case information and documents docketed after March 1, 2012 are available through CM/ECF PACER. Applicable PACER fees apply to both data sources.
Before searching for a case from the “Search Cases Filed Before March 1, 2012” link, check CM/ECF PACER. If the case is found in CM/ECF PACER, that source will have up-to-date information. The “Search Cases Filed Before March 1, 2012” link only contains information docketed prior to March 1, 2012 and it is not updated.
