If you use PACER’s client code feature, we’ve got a real time saver for you -- especially if you look up records for different cases in one research session. Our client code feature lets you switch client codes on the fly. With a persistent client code box along the top of every page, you can enter a new code at any time. Just type in a new code or select a previously used code before making a purchase.

Your credit details page is updated in real time to reflect any expenditures, including those linked to a client. You can view the details 24/7 and download a CSV file of the running total.

So if you want to track your PACER expenditures, our client code feature easily let’s you:

  • Enter new codes at any time
  • Easily select your own previously used codes
  • Easily select codes others in your firm have used

If you check PACER daily to track a multitude of bankruptcy cases, we have good news for you: Auto docket updates. This feature automates a tedious process to save you a ton of time. Of course the bad news is you may now have to tend to your other duties:

Judge: Is there any reason you could not serve as a juror in this case?
Juror: I don't want to be away from my job that long.
Judge: Can't they do without you at work?
Juror: Yes, but I don't want them to know it.  1

With auto docket updates or "Docket Alerts" as we call it, you will be able to auto-update any docket. You no longer need to individually search for dozens of cases and manually update each docket. You just choose the day and time for the update, say 8am eastern, and then choose the frequency, say every 24 hours. The range for the frequency can be set from every one hour to every one week.

To get the information you need from the auto-updates, you can also set email alerts:

  • Get an email of all new docket entries,
  • Get an email of docket entries only matching certain keywords, or
  • Don’t set alerts and just check your single view
