Notice to ECF Filers re Third-Party Services

11/27/2018

THIRD-PARTY SERVICES AND ACCESS TO CASE INFORMATION AND DOCUMENTS

CM/ECF filers should be aware of the potential to inadvertently share restricted documents when using third-party services software.

Sharing CM/ECF filing credentials and PACER account credentials with a third-party service provider or designating that provider as a secondary recipient of a Notice of Electronic Filing or Notice of Docket Activity (NEF/NDA) will give it the same access to sealed case information and documents as the account holder.  You are urged to use caution in your computer security practices to ensure that sealed documents to which you have access are not disclosed.  Fee exempt users should not share the documents they obtain from PACER under the exemption, unless expressly authorized by the court.
