The Court has upgraded to the Next Generation of CM/ECF (NextGen). NextGen provides ECF users access to both PACER and CM/ECF with one login and password (aka Central Sign On).
PACER ACCOUNT REQUIRED TO E-FILE
All ECF users must login to an individual PACER account via www.pacer.uscourts.gov to e-file and to register to e-file in the Court's CM/ECF system. If you do not already have your own individual PACER account, click here for instructions on how to register. Shared accounts cannot be used for ECF registration.
