U.S. District and Bankruptcy Courts to Upgrade CM/ECF Systems

On April 23, 2018, the U.S. District and Bankruptcy Courts for the Western District of Missouri will upgrade their to the Next Generation of Case Management and Electronic Case Files (“CM/ECF”) system. The District Court’s CM/ECF system will NOT be available from Friday, April 20th, at 3 p.m. until Monday morning, April 23rd.

Once upgraded, filers will need to perform two simple actions in order to file in Federal Court, including 1) Obtain a PACER account and/or upgrade it to the new system (shared accounts cannot be used), and 2) link the upgraded PACER account to their current District Court CM/ECF account.
