Law librarians from Georgetown and Stanford Law Schools are getting ready to deliver a petition from several hundred law libraries to the Administrative Office of the Courts, the group that administers the federal judiciary’s PACER system. They have a goal of 1,000 signatures. If you have a few minutes, look over the petition and if you agree with it, I’m sure the organizers will appreciate your support. The petition asks for some pretty reasonable things from the federal judiciary: signatures on documents, copies of the dockets to federal libraries, and a better way to disseminate the data.
Appointments have already been set up for just after Labor Day for the petition to be delivered in person to the Administrative Office of the Courts, with briefings about the content to the Government Printing Office, House, and Senate staff. Your support will help add important weight to this message.
