At its closed-door meeting at the Supreme Court on Tuesday, the Judicial Conference approved measures aimed at making federal court documents and courtroom audio recordings more widely available and at lower cost. The conference voted to increase the number of documents members of the public can obtain free through the PACER system, and also moved to expand on a successful two-year pilot program that has made digital audio of court proceedings available through PACER at a handful of district and bankruptcy courts nationwide.
