How do I get copies of a case?

You may obtain copies of a document from the file either by coming to the Clerk’s Office counter or sending a written request. (If you have access to a PACER account, you may print copies there.)

The fee for copies through the Clerk's Office is 50 cents ($0.50) per page.

If you need a copy of the docket or an order in a case, it may be available through the public computer terminal in our Clerk’s Office lobby. The charge is 10 cents ($0.10) per page if you come to the courthouse and print the document(s) from the public computer terminal.

If you do not know the case number, you can look up the case number using the party name on the public terminal located in the Clerk’s Office lobby.

If you are unable to look up the case number in our office, you may submit a written request for a name search, along with a fee of $30.00 per name. Payment must be made in advance.

If a file has been sent to the Federal Records Center for off-site storage, you may order it from the Clerk’s Office either in person or by mail. The retrieval fee is $64.00 for the first box and $39.00 for each additional box, payable in advance, to the Clerk, United States District Court. Please provide the complete case number, date filed and any other information you may have to ensure proper file retrieval. You will be notified when the file is available in the Clerk's Office for viewing.
