Claims Upload feature in CM/ECF to be Implemented 04/02/2012 for Limited User e-filers (posted 03/29/2012)
On Monday, April 2, 2012, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania will implement the Claims Upload feature in its CM/ECF system for e-filers with Limited User access.
This new item on the Bankruptcy Events menu will allow filers with limited user access to add and amend claims through the uploading of a file and to also add the creditor who is filing the claim to the case. The file that is uploaded is a “zipped” (compressed) file that incorporates both claims/creditor data in XML format and PDF files of the proofs of claim and supporting documentation.
Technical details for creditors interested in using this feature are available on PACER’s CM/ECF Developer Resources page (http://www.pacer.gov/cmecf/developer/) in the document titled “Electronic Filing of Bankruptcy Claims Process Document”.
The ability to transfer claims using this feature will not be available initially but will be added in the future.
