CM/ECF filing and PACER registration for Second Circuit filing users will suspend operation on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. as the conversion to NextGen CM/ECF commences. From Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 12:00 a.m. to Monday, October 20, 2014 at 12:00 p.m. all electronic filings, including those under deadline, must be made through the Court’s eboxes pursuant to the requirements of L.R. 25.2.

CM/ECF case dockets and documents can be viewed and downloaded via PACER until Friday, October 17, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. At that time the CM/ECF system will be closed until Monday, October 20, 2014 at 12:00 noon.

Prior to Friday, October 17, 2014 at 11:59 p.m., filing users should regularly check their email and open notices of docket activity (NDAs) as the Clerk’s Office will process all documents filed in CM/ECF prior to October 16, and issue the Court’s decisions, orders and notices. In addition, documents filed via the Court’s eboxes will be processed. No NDA will issue after Friday, October 17, 2014 at 5:00 p.m.

Notice will be posted on Monday, October 20, 2014 when Next Gen CM/ECF is operational. At that time filing users will be able to file and see dockets in PACER using their upgraded PACER account passwords. Please continue to monitor the website for updates.
