Electronic Public Access Fee Schedule Change, Effective January 1, 2020

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

The Judicial Conference of the United States, at its September 17, 2019 session, amended the Electronic Public Access Fee Schedule. The fee schedule was amended to increase the quarterly threshold for waiving Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) fees from $15 to $30. As a result, PACER users will not be charged a fee for usage that does not exceed $30 in a given quarterly billing cycle.

This change to the quarterly waiver threshold takes effect on January 1, 2020 and will be reflected on quarterly bills issued in April 2020.
