Want to get the real dirt on thedirty.com’s loss to former Bengal’s cheerleader Sarah Jones? Check out PACER.

Many people love to read the juicy stories from tabloids and online gossip sites; however, yesterday a jury in Kentucky held one online site liable for defamation. CBSSports.com reported a jury awarded Sarah Jones over $300,000.00 in her defamation lawsuit against thedirty.com. The CBS story gives some background and facts about the case, but lawyers often want to know the details that can only be found in the court record.

To find the complaint, answer, motions, and other filings for this case, simply go to the government’s federal court website called PACER, which stands for Public Access to Court Electronic Records. Using PACER you can search the case and docket information for federal district and appellate court cases, as well as, bankruptcy cases. There is a small fee for viewing documents that is capped at $3.00 per document. Currently, if you do not view more than $15.00 worth of documents in a quarter your fee is waived.
