Thread: This morning, @HouseJudiciary marks up a bill to provide greater (and free) public access court records on PACER. It’s got bipartisan support, introduced by @RepHankJohnson and @RepDougCollins

judiciary.house.gov/calendar/event…
The language for the bill is here: congress.gov/bill/116th-con…
Nearly a year ago, I testified about ways to make PACER more accessible. I’m glad to see many of the recommendations made it into the bipartisan bill. congress.gov/116/meeting/ho…
I’m admittedly not tracking the votes but know that @RepBenCline supported a previous version. May want to look at this version and see if it hits the same marks. or @Jim_Jordan who attended the hearing.

The public should have access to its own records.
Side note: Peak self loathing advocating for a position that would make my niche skillset obsolete. Free me from it, Let me take up a real hobby like woodworking or learning guitar.

The Feds arrested a Greensboro North Carolinaman for running a series of COVID frauds. The charging document is pretty plain. I found the seizure notice on his websites last month. It’s a fascinating ride and a lovely story of astroturfing.
First, he took our Facebook Ads offering help getting covid loans in exchange for a fee
His website said he worked with a number of large corporations, including the Times (I checked, they didn’t)
