NextGen CM/ECF is Coming! Monday, September 27, 2021 - What It Means For You

**IMPORTANT NOTICE**:  The Court's CM/ECF System is now on NextGen CM/ECF.  Creditors may still file certain pleadings through the Court's website without requiring a login and password to the NextGen CM/ECF system.  Please see the "For Creditors" page for more information. 

What's Changing for CM/ECF Filers

On Friday, September 24, 2021 the Court upgraded its Case Management/Electronic Case Filing System ("CM/ECF") to the Next Generation of CM/ECF ("NextGen").  This upgrade provides users with several new benefits.  One of these benefits is Central Sign-On, a login process which allows e-filing attorneys and non-attorneys to use one PACER login and password to access any NextGen Court (appellate, bankruptcy and district) in which they practice.

All electronic filers MUST obtain their own PACER account.  Your PACER account is your login for NextGen, and therefore you MUST have your own individual PACER Account.  E-filers are not able to use shared PACER accounts.  Please click the PACER link below for more information regarding how to obtain a PACER account, upgrade your PACER Account and link your PACER Account to your current CM/ECF account.
