Searching for and collecting the court records you need for the Southern District of Indiana from the Public Access to Court Electronic Records or PACER, can be expensive, difficult, and time-consuming.
UniCourt gathers court data for all of the new federal civil and criminal cases in the Southern District of Indiana every day and allows you to search through all the new case filings in our CrowdSourced Library™ for free. UniCourt also gives you real-time, bulk access to the entire PACER database of civil and criminal federal court data from the Indiana Southern 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.
PACER also charges users additional fees to download the same document multiple times. Using UniCourt, you can download documents from the N.D. Ga. in our CrowdSourced Library™ for free as many times as you want. Our free library is transparent, unlike PACER, which also charges additional document fees. PACER charges 10 cents per page and claims that these fees are capped at $3, but oftentimes the fees can be much higher for access to court transcripts.
In addition to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, UniCourt provides access to court records for the other U.S. District Court in Indiana: the Northern District of Indiana.
