Law Librarians Support Free Access to PACER
Readers of this blog may recall a post made in mid-February about PACER and the public's right to free access to federal court filings. The American Association of Law Libraries has also made its position clear in support of that idea. See their blog post about the follow up by Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman to the E-Government Act of 2002. The AALL position is spelled out more fully on p. 3 of the Statement to the Obama-Biden Transition Team: Public Policy Position of the American Association of Law Libraries available in PDF here.
