Only registered CM/ECF users are granted access to file in CM/ECF. As of January 21, 2020, all public users of CM/ECF—including attorneys and self-represented parties who have been granted filing privileges—must access CM/ECF using credentials for an upgraded individual PACER account.
Individuals who were registered users of CM/ECF prior to January 21, 2020, and who have not made any filings since before that date will be required to link an upgraded individual PACER account with their existing CM/ECF user account.1
Individuals seeking to become registered users after January 21, 2020, must request CM/ECF filing privileges via PACER.
1 Attorneys admitted to the bar prior to January 21, 2020, but who have never registered for a CM/ECF account should contact the Court for assistance.
