    This login allows access to CM/ECF for the purpose of receiving email notifications of case activity.

Non-Filing users cannot file documents electronically.

     

    Filing Agents

    A trustee or attorney may create and link several ‘Filing Agents’ to their user account so that when the agent files on behalf of the trustee/attorney, the docket text shows the trustee’s/attorney’s name as the filer.
