Locating the court records you need for the Eastern District of New York from the Public Access to Court Electronic Records, or PACER, can be expensive, difficult, and time-consuming.
Everyday, UniCourt gathers court data for all of the new federal civil cases in the Eastern District of New York and we give you the ability to search through all of those new case filings in our CrowdSourced Library™ free of charge. UniCourt also gives you real-time, bulk access to the entire PACER database of civil and criminal federal court data from the New York Eastern District through our PACER API. However, 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. What’s worse, is that 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 forces users to pay additional fees if they want to download the same document multiple times. In contrast, if UniCourt has a document you need from EDNY in our CrowdSourced Library™, you can download it for free as many times as you want. Not only does PACER charge to download the same document multiple times, but PACER also charges 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.
In addition to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, UniCourt gives you access to court records for all of the other U.S. District Courts in New York, including the Northern District of New York, the Southern District of New York, and the Western District of New York.
