Online Petition Drive Launched to Improve PACER
Erika Wayne (Stanford Law School Library) and others have launched an online petition drive directed at the Administrative Office of the US Courts to improve PACER. The petition reads:
We ask the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts to improve PACER by enhancing the authenticity, usability and availability of the system.
We the undersigned, urge the Administrative Office of the US Courts (AO) to make the following changes to the PACER system:
For verification and reliability, the AO should digitally sign every document put into PACER using readily available technology.
PACER needs to be much more readily accessible if it is to be usable for research, education, and the practice of law. Improved accessibility includes both lowering the costs for using PACER and enhancing the web interfaces.
Depository libraries should also have free access to PACER.
You can sign the petition here. [JH]

The best and quickest way of how legal issues are addressed to. I wonder if this petition is valid though.
