CJA Fee Exempt Pacer Accounts

CJA Panel attorneys can register with the PACER Service Center for a fee exempt PACER account that may be used for cases in which they have been appointed as CJA counsel.


Use of a fee exempt PACER account is NOT permitted for private cases, thus CJA Panel members will need to have two PACER accounts if they wish to take advantage of the CJA fee exempt status: a fee exempt account for CJA appointed cases and a non-exempt account for retained/private cases. CJA Panel members will need to take care to ensure that the two accounts are each used properly. Please be aware that fee exempt PACER accounts are audited regularly for improper usage.
