The Public Access to Court Electronic Records allows registered online users to access federal court records. Users with verified Pacer accounts search and access court records at a rate of 10 cents per page.
Interested parties should check a particular state's official judiciary website to verify if the website allows online access to trial records. The National Center for State Courts provides a list of links to the judiciary websites of counties in every state. The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press also provides useful information about accessing electronic court records for each state, including federal, state and juvenile courts.
