Case Challenging PACER Fees is allowed to move forward

Editor’s Note: we will be writing a lot about this in the weeks to come, re: how the PACER system in the United States is highly questionable, as it actually forces members of the public to pay, page by the page (and only if they have a credit card) to view the law.

Theodore D’Apuzzo received a favorable opinion, denying the U.S. Government’s Motion to Dismiss in his case against PACER.

In a nutshell:

  1. The case can proceed.
  2. Stay on discovery is now lifted.
  3. Government must now answer the complaint by October 10, 2017.
