PACER: “U.S. Court Records Would Be Free Under House Judiciary Bill”
From Bloomberg Law:
The electronic database of federal court records known as PACER under bipartisan legislation approved Tuesday by the House Judiciary Committee.
The Open Courts Act (H.R. 8235) is sponsored by Georgia Reps. Hank Johnson (D) and Doug Collins (R).
While there isn’t a companion bill in the Senate, lawmakers introduced a similar bipartisan bill last year. The Senate bill is sponsored by Sens. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii).
