E-Filing Access Related Questions
What types of cases are designated for electronic filing?
All civil and criminal cases are designated for electronic filing. All documents must be filed electronically unless exempted by Local Rule 5-4.2 or Local Criminal Rule 49-1.2.
Should I keep my Login and Password secure?
The Court recommends that attorneys keep their login and password secure and only give it to staff who are authorized to e-file on the attorney's behalf. This helps to prevent unauthorized persons from obtaining access to CM/ECF and using it for malicious purposes. If an attorney detects that a compromise may have occurred to a login or password, the attorney has the ability to change both.
