Judge Signs Off on a $125 Million Settlement in PACER Fees Lawsuit

A federal judge has signed off on a $125 million settlement to certain users of the PACER electronic court records system.

Judge Paul Friedman of the US District Court for the District of Columbia gave his approval on Wednesday after lawyers for both PACER users and the federal judiciary urged him to do so at an October 2023 hearing.

Friedman’s approval will start the process for eligible PACER users to be automatically reimbursed up to $350 for fees they paid between April 21, 2010, and May 31, 2018. Class members would then get a proportional amount of the remaining funds, without receiving more than the total fees they paid during that time period.
