RSS Feeds


To allow for easier public access to specific data, PACER users and attorney e-filers may use RSS feeds for notification of docketed events in civil, criminal and MDL matters.  Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a type of XML that allows Internet browsers and other feed readers to display information from a website.  Users can subscribe to RSS feeds so they will be notified every time content is updated on a particular site.

The Court’s RSS feed includes the last 24 hours’ worth of publicly available docketed events in civil and criminal cases, but are not case-specific.  Restricted and sealed information is NOT available.

A standard RSS reader is not provided with CM/ECF.  Users must acquire, install, and configure third-party RSS reader software before the feature can be used in CM/ECF.

There are two options for accessing CM/ECF RSS feeds for the Southern District of Ohio:

  1. Subscribing to CM/ECF RSS Feeds: Users may subscribe by clicking the following link:  CM/ECF RSS Feed; this link will launch the current feed in the user’s web browser. Each browser provides an option to subscribe to the feed.  
  2. Accessing from CM/ECF or PACER: When users are logged directly into CM/ECF (or through a PACER account), the RSS feed may be accessed through the Utilities menu by clicking on the RSS feed link.                                           

Note: For either option, users will have to visit the CM/ECF RSS feed to view the most up-to-date docket entry notifications/documents.  Email notifications are not sent to subscribers.

PACER Access Required

To view any documents or docket sheets displayed in the CM/ECF RSS feed, users will be prompted to log in with a PACER account and will incur associated PACER fees when viewing a document.  To obtain a PACER account or for more information, please visit

For any questions or concerns regarding the Court’s RSS feed, please contact the Clerk’s Office at (614) 719-3016.
