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

Sharing your 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 access to sealed or restricted case information and documents in violation of court order. You are urged to use caution in your computer security practices to ensure that sealed or restricted documents to which you have access are not disclosed.

☆ Notice: Deadlines on NEFs ☆

When a filing is made on CM/ECF that allows or requires a response, reply, or other subsequent filing, CM/ECF will generate a deadline for that future filing that is then transmitted to the attorneys on the docket sheet of that case via a Notice of Electronic Filing (NEF).

Please note that these NEF deadlines are automatically generated by CM/ECF based on the time periods set by the Rules of the Court, and do not take into consideration any already existing judge-issued deadlines that may be in place. To ensure the timeliness of their filings, practitioners should always adhere to any deadlines set by a judge.
