RSS Feed for OHND Electronic Filings

Real Simple Syndication (RSS) is a mechanism for delivering regularly changing web content to interested parties. RSS feeds are often used by news organizations, weather sites and bloggers to push, or syndicate, content to their readers.

The U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, has enabled an RSS feed for filings made in its CM/ECF electronic records system. Users can stay up-to-date on case filings of interest to them in an efficient, cost-effective way via this RSS feed.

Users can access and subscribe to this feed by going to the Court's public web site (http://www.ohnd.uscourts.gov) and clicking on the orange "RSS" icon in the upper right hand of any page on the web site, and then clicking on the "Recent Filings" link.

RSS icons for OHND and for over 50 additional participating courts can be accessed from the Court Links page on the PACER web site (http://www.pacer.gov/psco/cgi-bin/links.pl).

Using functionality found in commercially available RSS readers, users can customize the feed to provide alerts only when specific types of filings or filings in specific cases occur. Users do not incur fees for viewing data provided by the RSS feed. However, if a user clicks a hyperlink within the feed, the user will be prompted to log in to PACER, and will incur the standard PACER fees for any information accessed.
