Coming Soon? Free Written Opinions in PACER

In an upcoming CM/ECF release (Release 2.4), PACER users will be able to obtain written opinions at no charge from district courts. Opinions will be accessible via a separate Written Opinions Report and from a case’s docket report. See release notes.
CM/ECF is a case management/electronic case files system that some courts use in conjunction with PACER. Imaged documents are available on these systems in PDF. Currently, the Wisconsin Eastern District Court is using CM/ECF District Version 2.3 which means the upgrades are not yet available. The Wisconsin Western District Court does not use CM/ECF system.
