Seeking out court records you need for the Eastern District of North Carolina from the Public Access to Court Electronic Records, or PACER, is a highly expensive and taxing process.
Unlike PACER, UniCourt gathers court data for all of the new federal civil cases in the Eastern District of North Carolina every day and gives you the ability to search through all of those new case filings in our CrowdSourced Library™ free of charge. Furthermore, UniCourt provides you with real-time, bulk access to the entire PACER database of civil and criminal federal court data from the Eastern District of North Carolina through our PACER API.
PACER operates on a charge-per-case basis and so when you search for cases through PACER you will have to pay a charge for every single search. Payment is required even if you are not satisfied with the search. Furthermore, you can amass a number of avoidable fees for unsatisfactory searches when searching on PACER because PACER does not place cost limits for each case search you make. Utilizing UniCourt’s database can spare you from costly fees.
PACER requires document fees in addition to the charges they require per case search. The document fees are 10 cents per page and PACER asserts that the fees are capped at $3, but when you try to obtain court transcripts, that cap will increase. PACER also charges a fee for multiple downloads of the same document. UniCourt allows multiple downloads of the same document free of charge as long as the document is in our CrowdSourced Library™.
In addition to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, UniCourt gives you access to court records for the other U.S. District Courts in North Carolina: the Middle District of North Carolina and the Western District of North Carolina. UniCourt also provides you with bulk access to all federal court records within North Carolina, such as cases filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit at the Lewis F. Powell United States Courthouse and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.
