05 Jan Bankuptcy Appeals Courts Start Electronic Filing
Most U.S. Courts of Appeals and some Bankruptcy Appellate Panels where bankruptcy appeals are litigated have begun accepting the filing of documents electronically.
Most bankruptcy attorneys are familiar with electronic case filing and will welcome the ability to file their documents online over the Internet instead of mailing documents to far away court clerks. Most bankruptcy appeals courts, but not all, have gone live with electronic case filing.
The following circuits are accepting Electronic Case Filing (ECF) registrations for purposes of electronic filing and/or to permit access by case participants to certain restricted case types.
* U.S. Court of Appeals, First Circuit, (electronic service only)
* U.S. Court of Appeals, Third Circuit
* U.S. Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit
* U.S. Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit
* U.S. Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit
* U.S. Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit
* U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit
* U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit BAP
* U.S. Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit
* U.S. Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit BAP, (electronic service only)
* U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit
Users will be required to register with PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) to gain access to the Appellate ECF. If you already have a PACER account, you must register for a separate Appellate PACER account and indicate which circuit(s) you want.
For more information, you may contact the PACER Service Center at email@example.com or call (800) 676-6856.
