Pursuant to the E-Government Act of 2002, written opinions issued by the court after April 16, 2005, are available to the public.
The Judicial Conference defines a "written opinion" as any document issued by a judge or judges of the court, sitting in that capacity, that sets forth a reasoned explanation for a court's decision.
A written opinions report is available through CM/ECF. Access to the opinions in the report is free. Docket sheets are available at a per page fee via PACER.
