CM/ECF FAQs

  • I received the NEF, but I did not get my free look.

    The "free look" applies to the main document only. The "free look" expires after 15 days. Do not double-click the link on the NEF, this will 'kill' your "free look".

  • When I click on the document link a blank page is displayed.

    Uncheck "Display PDF in Browser" in Adobe Acrobat. Select Edit, select Preferences, in the new window click on Internet in the left pane, then on the right pane un-check "Display PDF in browser".

  • How do I learn to use the CM/ECF system?

    To promote familiarity with the ECF system, the Court encourages use of the tutorial programs for individual instruction. The Court also offers hands-on training classes. Information and schedules will be posted to this web site. A detailed User's Manual is available on the website. Reviewing the on-line learning modules and completing the quiz or attending the hands-on training are required for ECF registration.
