Seeking out court records you need for the District of Massachusetts from the Public Access to Court Electronic Records, or PACER, is a very costly and tedious process.
Unlike PACER, UniCourt gathers court data for all of the new federal civil cases in the District of Massachusetts every day and gives you the ability to search through all of those new case filings in our CrowdSourced Library™ with no costs attached. Furthermore, UniCourt provides you with real-time, bulk access to the entire PACER database of civil and criminal federal court data from the District of Massachusetts through our PACER API.
PACER charges you for every case search you conduct and will charge you for case searches that were not helpful to your needs. PACER does not have limits on costs for each case search you conduct so you can amass exorbitant fees for unsatisfactory searches. Utilizing UniCourt’s database can help prevent paying an unnecessary amount of fees.
Additionally, PACER charges you for document fees. The document fees amount to 10 cents per page. Although PACER claims fees are capped at $3, the cap increases when you try to access court transcripts. PACER also charges you if you want to download the same document numerous times. With UniCourt, you can download any document you want as many times as you would like without paying any fees as long as the document is in our CrowdSourced Library™.
In addition to the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, UniCourt gives you access to all federal court records within Massachusetts, such as cases filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit at the Boston Courthouse and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts.
UniCourt’s industry-leading Legal Data APIs provide Enterprise users with on-demand, bulk access to structured data from the state of Massachusetts and federal courts. UniCourt collects, organizes, standardizes, and normalizes court data from all federal courts and makes it easily accessible via our APIs as a part of our Legal Data as a Service (LDaaS) offerings for business development, competitive intelligence, litigation strategy, and docket management.
