RECAP Plug-in: A group from Princeton University has created a software application or "plug-in" for Firefox called RECAP, which was designed to enable the sharing of court documents on the Internet.  It appears that once a user loads RECAP, any document that he/she subsequently accesses via PACER is automatically sent to a public Internet site.  The full implications of using RECAP or related software are as yet unknown, including whether restricted documents could be inadvertently made available on the public Internet.  Accordingly, fee-exempt PACER users are reminded that information should only be used in accordance with the purpose for which the exemption was granted.  We will post additional information as it becomes available.
