Statistics: “Busy Time for PACER Service Center”

From the U.S. Courts Web Site:

Fiscal year 2011 was the busiest ever for the federal judiciary’s Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) system, and this fiscal year continues that trend. In the first four months of FY 2012, the PACER Service Center responded to about 60,000 telephone calls and 15,000 emails.

In addition, the center will establish more than 50,000 new PACER accounts as all aspects of the operation – including new account registration and user support – are trending upwards.
