Finding the court records you need for the Middle District of Alabama from the Public Access to Court Electronic Records, or PACER, can be costly, challenging, and slow.
In contrast, UniCourt gathers court data for all of the new federal civil cases in the Middle District of Alabama everyday and provides you with the ability to search through all of those new case filings in our CrowdSourced Library™ without excessive fees. UniCourt also gives you real-time, bulk access to the entire PACER database of civil and criminal federal court data from the Alabama Middle District through our PACER API.
Unlike UniCourt, PACER charges for every case search you make on their platform, even if the search terms you used do not produce any results. Further, PACER does not limit the cost of each case search you make, meaning you could be charged excessive fees for searches that return a mountain of results.
In addition to PACER’s expensive case search fees, PACER also charges court document fees. PACER charges 10 cents per page and claims that these fees are capped at $3, but they can be much higher for access to court transcripts. PACER further forces users to pay additional fees if they want to download the same document multiple times. On the other hand, if UniCourt has a document you need from the Alabama Middle District in our CrowdSourced Library™, you can download it for free as many times as you’d like.
UniCourt gives you access to the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama and to court records for the other U.S. District Courts in Alabama: the Northern District of Alabama and the Southern District of Alabama.
