PACER fee to increase from $.08 to $.10 per page

Yesterday, the US Courts announced that they authorized an increase in Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) page view fees from $.08 to $.10 per page.

Not all, but most district, bankruptcy, and circuit courts allow you to file motions, memorandum of law, and other legal documents electronically through the Electronic Case Filing (ECF) system on PACER.  PACER also has a helpful docketing system which allows you to receive email notices every time the docket is updated on your case.  Unfortunately, you always had to remember to download the pdf file once you clicked on the email link otherwise you would not be able to access the file again and they would double charge you for re-accessing the pages.

I remember the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) did that, too.  You had to remember to download the pdf file of your MPRE scores when you received them.  After a certain amount of time, you were not able to access your MPRE scores and you had to spend extra money to have the National Conference of Bar Examiners re-send MPRE scores.
