CM/ECF is the court's online case management and electronic case filing application. This tool enables participating attorneys and litigants to submit pleadings and corresponding documents electronically to the court and allows the court to file, maintain, and retrieve case file information. CM/ECF filing is mandatory for attorneys and optional for those representing themselves ("pro se" filers).
