Automated Case Notification
Until recently, PACER users that wanted to follow a case were tasked with repeatedly visiting the PACER site to check for updates. This has changed with recent versions of CM/ECF. Some courts are now providing automatic case notification through the use of RSS feeds. PACER users can easily stay informed of newly docketed events by subscribing to a court's RSS feed, which is free and includes automatic notification of activity in all cases, summarized text such as the name of the document filed, with links to the document and docket report. Results may be sorted by date or case title. There are many commercially-available RSS readers, which offer the capability of organizing and filtering the results further.
Users must login to PACER to view the document or docket report linked from the RSS feed. To learn which courts have implemented RSS, please visit the court links page. Click on the court's RSS feed icon () to display the feed.
