All CM/ECF and PACER services will be unavailable from 9:00 AM until approximately 3:00 PM ET. Case participants and counsel who need to e-file a document should plan accordingly. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Notice of Redaction Responsibility
All filers must redact: Social Security or taxpayer-identification numbers; dates of birth; names of minor children; financial account numbers; and, in criminal cases, home addresses, in compliance with Fed. R. App. P. 25(a)(5), Fed. R. Civ. P. 5.2 or Fed. R. Crim. P. 49.1 or Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9037. This requirement applies to all documents, including attachments.
To file documents using the CM/ECF system, users must have Java 1.6 Update 31 (v1.6.0_X) or later installed on your computer. The latest releases of Appellate CM/ECF are compatible with the newer Java 1.7 (v1.7.0_X) software. We recommend all users keep their Java software up-to-date.
If you do not have Java installed or need to upgrade your current version, go to www.java.com to download the latest version for free (Windows users who run 32-bit and 64-bit browsers interchangeably will need to install both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Java).
Note: Apple supplies their own version of Java. Use the Software Update feature (available on the Apple menu) to check that you have the appropriate version of Java for your Mac.
