Changes to CM/ECF and the Court's Website (10/02/2015)

Friday, October 2, 2015

On 10/02/15 the Court made changes to CM/ECF and its website.

Changes Friday, October 2, 2015:

  • CM/ECF:  The Court's Electronic Case Filing System (CM/ECF) now allows e-filers to enter $0.00 when opening a voluntary Bankruptcy case where the filing fee will be paid in installments.
  • Web site - For Attorneys tab:  A guide to editing metadata has been posted to our website under "For Attorneys."  Metadata or certain document property information that is "hidden" within most documents created in word processing applications and in PDF documents.  Unless certain steps are taken to remove this information, it becomes imbedded in the document and is viewable by anyone saving a local copy.  The document's "author," a file path, date and time the document was created are examples of metadata.  The guide to metadata is located here
