There is the old fashioned way of going to the courthouse and signing out the case file. There are others, like Lexis/Nexis, but they can be expensive.

Actually, no more case files, it's all ECF now, i.e., free Pacer in the clerk's office. Very pokey machines and copying is $.50 a page, so home use is better.

That shows how out of touch I have become. It used to be a microfilm index, and then a paper file, lol.

Perhaps you are just blessed that you don't have to know about the files anymore, LOL.
