    • Start some sort of discussion forum to invite other ideas

      The soaring narrative on public record 'liberation' fails to address some very pertinent facts. There are already grave abuses (for example, in the mugshot publication extortion racket) . Most people aren't quite ready to throw in the towel on the idea of privacy just yet. I think some sort of discussion area should be made, so people interested in this issue can civilly discuss the ramifications of subjecting to 19th Century public records laws to 21st century information technology.

      Are the most intimate details of our lives, as rendered into court records then further onto the internet, mere prurient fodder,…

      • BUG: Recap of documents I downloaded is NOT there.

        BUG: Recap of documents I downloaded is NOT there.
        This is for SDNY but also for 2nd Circuit. Also, the docket reports which I generated are not listed as being saved in Recap.

        • Related to "accusations by courts", is data authenticity an issue here?

          Has the authenticity of data in the RECAP system been questioned? Expertise and systems to integrate digital signing to the process are available, possibly gratis.

            • fix a problem with bankruptcy matters

              In this case: http://ia600507.us.archive.org/6/items/gov.uscourts.ctb.229822/gov.uscourts.ctb.229822.docket.html
              I'm finding that the system overwrites main bankruptcy case data with adversary proceeding data. What's the best way to fix this?

              • After clicking on a filing, I am not getting a notice that RECAP has uploaded the file. I do get message for docket uploads.

                I am getting notices that RECAP is activated, but do not get any notices when clicking on a link to a filing on the docket. I primarily deal with Bankruptcy courts.

                • Chrome bug - chron order of docket reverts

                  When first going to a docket, the PACER website provides a drop-down to sort the docket oldest to newest (default) or newest to oldest. If I select newest to oldest, the docket is in that order until I go to a document. After downloading the document, when one uses the "back" button to return to the docket, the docket sort order goes to the default, i.e., oldest to newest.

                  MAC OS X 10.6.8
                  Chrome Version 30.0.1599.101

                  • Update the extension for Firefox 34.0.5?

                    I lost most of my extensions when I upgraded Firefox. I removed the disabled recap extension and just tried to reinstall it, but got this error:

                    "The add-on could not be downloaded because of a connection at www.recapthelaw.com"

                    Got that error AFTER it downloaded.

                      • explain why entering a case name into the Adv search case name box doesn't work but it works if I enter the name into the basic search box

                        You could use an online user manual or tutorial to explain how to search. I searched by a case name (Dana J Rosenberg) in the Advanced case name box and limited it to Cal C.D. and no results. When I entered Dana J Rosenberg into the top basic search box and limited it to Cal C.D. it came back with 2 cases, but only one was Dana J Rosenberg. I tried using Dana J Rosenberg v. Ventura County in the adv search box and also tried Rosenberg-no results. What is the correct way of entering a case name into the…

                        • history

                          It would be great if you could see a history of the dockets you've accessed in the past (30 days) so that you can easily go back to them when needed.

                          • Not sure if RECAP is working, first time user

                            I'm trying to use http://www.plainsite.org/asymptote/ and the links it gives me are to, say, https://ecf.azd.uscourts.gov/doc1/0250233458

                            When I click to download that, I just get the file. It's not clear that RECAP did anything or what I should do to enable RECAP.

                            Thanks!

                            • Possible bug-RECAP doc doesn't match PACER doc

                              http://ia301526.us.archive.org/0/items/gov.uscourts.cand.210110/gov.uscourts.cand.210110.docket.html document number 50 is supposed to be a memorandum in opposition to a motion to dismiss, but instead is this document http://www.archive.org/download/gov.uscourts.cand.210110/gov.uscourts.cand.210110.50.0.pdf which is an order denying a request to appear by telephone.

                              I.E., when I'm in N.D. Cal. PACER looking at case 5:08-cv-05780-JF, I get one document when I click on the RECAP icon next to docket number 50 and a totally different document when I click on the PACER link "50."

                              This is not good.

                                We discovered and fixed the source of this problem. There are a couple of remaining stray dockets with mismatched documents, but we know why it happened, we know how to fix it, and are in the process of doing so.
