New Site Offers Unique Access to Bankruptcy Records

Interesting web page is giving the federal courts’ PACER system a bit of competition for accessing bankruptcy case information. The new site, called Inforuptcy, gives requesters the ability to view or purchase previously downloaded PACER documents. See

The way it works is quite simple. The search is free. If the case document is available from a previously downloaded file, the HTML version can be viewed for no charge and a PDF version of the document is offered for $.05 a page, which is 50% of the PACER fee of $.10 a page. If the document is not already on the system, then Inforuptcy pulls the document from PACER at the PACER rate. Then the document is stored and later can be used by new requesters. Inforuptcy also has a Marketplace service that allows users to sell or purchase bankruptcy claims and assets. The Wall Street Journal published an article about Inforuptcy on April 18, 2012.
