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". 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.
