An Explanation of the Change in PACER Authentication

As you may know, PACER recently implemented changes to its login procedures. Those changes affected PacerPro service for some users whose PACER accounts also enable them to make court filings. This issue principally affects two groups: individual attorneys using their personal PACER accounts with PacerPro, and law firms whose attorneys may have accidentally “linked” their case-filing (ECF) account to the firm’s view-only PACER credentials.

If you or your firm are among those affected, we ask that you take one of the following steps to ensure continued access to PacerPro.

The first option is to “de-link” your PACER account from filing accounts by visiting
https://pacer.psc.uscourts.gov/pscof/login.jsf to determine which courts have been linked to your PACER account, then contact those courts to delink those accounts.

The second option is to obtain separate view-only PACER credentials by visiting https://pacer.psc.uscourts.gov/pscof/registration.jsf.

Then enter the new credentials at https://app.pacerpro.com/accounts/edit (for individual accounts) or https://app.pacerpro.com/organization (for firm accounts). Please note that PACER only allows users to associate one individual account per email address.

Thank you very much for your patience and cooperation.

Ambrogi has since produced his own streamlined listing that currently has nearly 500 companies offering technologies to the legal industry. Several are courting attorneys who need better, cheaper ways to sort through the avalanche of legal filings, rulings, and spiderwebs of citations between cases, from the local to federal level.
