What is CM/ECF?

CM/ECF (Case Management/Electronic Case Filing) is an Internet-based document filing system. CM/ECF is user-friendly and offers many benefits to the public, attorneys, and the court. By using this system, entries are immediately placed on the docket sheet. You can view docket entries and the pleading right from your PC without leaving your office! The design of CM/ECF provides for low-cost user access to the system. Any modern PC with Internet access and Web browser software can access CM/ECF. Retrieving electronically filed documents requires Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader software (or its equivalent), which is available at no cost from Adobe over the Internet.
