Retrieving Official Court Records

Effective with the implementation of Bankruptcy CM/ECF Release 4.1, and pursuant to a Privacy Policy amendment approved by the Judicial Conference of the United States, there is a restriction on PACER public access to certain documents. In any bankruptcy case that was filed prior to December 1, 2003, and which has been closed for more than one year, documents are no longer available to the general public via PACER.

The docket report may still be viewed however, only ECF case participants may access the restricted documents via PACER. The affected documents also are available via mail; at the front desk; or through the public access terminals. Copy and search fees do apply. Please contact our helpdesk if you have additional questions.
