Filing Procedures when the Court Declares a CM/ECF System Outage/Unavailability

Outage/Unavailability of CM/ECF

In the event that the Court declares the CM/ECF filing system to be unavailable as defined in the ECF Filing Procedures, the Clerk’s Office will post a Notice of CM/ECF System Outage/Unavailability on this website’s homepage and send an e-mail to registered users to alert users to the outage. The Clerk's Office will also post a Notice when access to CM/ECF has been restored.

 

Filing via E-mail

Filing via email will commence on the date and time stated in the Court’s Notice declaring the unavailability of the CM/ECF system and will end upon the Court’s Notice of the resolution of the system outage. Any documents sent to this email address outside of the time period identified in the Court's official Notices will not be considered filed by the Court.

PDF documents filed via email must conform to all current requirements as outlined in the Local Rules and ECF Filing Procedures.

During the time periods identified in the Court's official Notices of a CM/ECF System Outage/Unavailability users may file their pleadings via email to the following address: filing@wawd.uscourts.gov.

Documents filed via email will be considered received upon the date of receipt by the Court. They will be docketed by court staff once the CM/ECF Outage/Unavailability has been resolved.
