PACER Adds Audio to Docket

Pacer has added audio from selected District and Bankruptcy courts to the docket listings in the service.  These recordings will be available for download for a fee of 8 cents aside from any fees associated with the docket reports.  Some courts, such as the Seventh Circuit, have had audio recordings of oral arguments for some time.  This is a bit different.  Transcripts have traditionally not been available through Pacer, even though they may be in the court file.  The audio recordings are not a substitute, but they may help determine if one needs to order up a transcript.  The press release is here.
