The outage does not affect any of the online services available through this website site or any PACER site throughout the country.

New Login Pages Coming in March

On March 17, 2019, new login pages will be released that will allow users to select which court they want to access or indicate which court they are accessing (see January newsletter for details). If you are an automatic script user (i.e., if you have written a program that automatically logs you into PACER), please note that your login process may be impacted. You should continue to direct all authentication requests to https://pacer.login.uscourts.gov/csologin/login.jsf.

To ensure that your process continues to work you may test it at https://qa-login.uscourts.gov/csologin/login.jsf in preparation for the release. Register for a test account, if needed. There is no charge for searches in QA. You may skip the credit card portion of the registration. Your QA account will be activated overnight.

Please note, this is a testing site and occasionally it may be unavailable due maintenance. Also, there are features that may be in testing that are not currently available in production.
