In accordance with the Judicial Code, 42 Pa.C.S. §4301(b), the Electronic Case Record Public Access policy of The Unified Judicial System of Pennsylvania was approved by the Supreme Court effective January 1, 2007, and subsequently amended effective January 1, 2013.
In 2007, the Supreme Court adopted Rule 509 of the Rules of Judicial Administration. Rule 509 establishes a systematic process for requesting and accessing state court system records that deal with the use of public funds, including the purchase of services, supplies or equipment. It was later amended to include the local court systems (judicial districts) within the rule’s scope and to require the establishment of a website for contract postings. In 2012, Rule 509 expanded the financial information available on the website to include annual appropriation, expenditure, personnel complement and annual compensation information for the Supreme, Superior and Commonwealth courts and the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania.
