    A variety of online information services are being provided by federal courts, at all levels, including the Courts of Appeals, District Courts and Bankruptcy Courts. There is no uniformity of services, however, except that interested persons may register (free) at one time for all services and be eligible to use any of the offered services, for a fee of $1 per minute, usually.
