CM/ECF is a Case Management system with Electronic Case Files. Registered users will receive a CM/ECF login, which they can use to file documents electronically.

PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) is a nationally developed system, which courts around the country are using, to bill the public when querying court records and imaged documents through the Internet. After CM/ECF is implemented, those with PACER I.D.'s can continue to use these same logins and passwords to query CM/ECF case information. Both the PACER and CM/ECF logins may be combined, to eliminate logging in twice. Billing will continue to occur when using PACER for query, but not when filing documents electronically with the court using CM/ECF. See billing for more information.
