Expansion of Electronic Court Filing System

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 9, 2004

“The U.S. District Court in New Jersey yesterday joined the growing ranks of federal courts that require lawyers to file all civil case pleadings in electronic format, making it easier for the public and press to obtain copies of them…According to the Administrative Office of U.S. Courts, the District of New Jersey becomes the 36th of the nation’s 94 federal district courts to have adopted the electronic filing system, known as Case Management/Electronic Case Files. The CM/ECF system is almost universally used in the nation’s bankruptcy courts, and its implementation is scheduled to begin at the federal appeals court level at some point this year.” [Link]
