Supreme Court Will Bypass PACER, Put Its Filings Online For Free – Free Government Information (FGI)

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts announced in his year-end report on the state of the federal judiciary that The Supreme Court is developing an “electronic filing system” similar to PACER, which, once made public in 2016, will make all filings at the Court available to the legal community and the public on the Court’s website and (unlike PACER) without fees. Filings include petitions and responses to petitions, merits briefs, and all other types of motions and applications.

Here’s something I missed when it came out. It does seem odd that the Supreme Court of the United States will have a separate filing system. But I won’t stress over something that gives people free access to cases that affect millions of lives.
