The US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit will implement NextGen CM/ECF on January 16, 2018

The US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit will implement the Next Generation of Case Management Electronic Case Filing System (NextGen CM/ECF) on January 16, 2018! If you are a CM/ECF user who wishes to e-file on or after January 16, 2018, you must complete a prerequisite by upgrading your individual PACER account. You can find a step-by-step video guide on how to do this here.

If you are requesting to become an Electronic Filer, please note that the Third Circuit Court of Appeals will be temporarily suspending requests from January 9, 2018 at 5pm until January 16, 2018 at 8:30am.

If you have any additional questions or are not sure if your account is already upgraded, you can go here. As more information will become available upon launch, visit www.ca3.uscourts.gov.
