Interesting Blog Entry on PACER Fees
Steve Schultze, Associate Director of the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton, recently posted an interesting entry on the issue of PACER fees and the use of its revenues to finance other government programs.

PACER fees can be expensive to lawyers who frequently require PACER materials but also raises the issue of whether charging fees works against public access to proceedings.
