PACER to restore documents it took offline

The Washington Post reports that The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts has a plan to restore online access to documents that were controversially removed in August from PACER, the online system for accessing public court records.

“The Administrative Office is working to restore electronic access to these cases by converting the docket sheets in these cases to PDF format which will allow us to make them available in PACER,” said David Sellers, assistant director for public affairs at the AO, in a statement to the Washington Post.
