The JPML upgraded its Case Management/Electronic Case Filing system (CM/ECF) to the Next Generation of CM/ECF (NextGen) effective May 3, 2021.
Attorneys must have an upgraded individual PACER account to e-file in the JPML’s NextGen CM/ECF system and be a member in good standing of a federal or state bar. PACER accounts can be obtained at https://pacer.uscourts.gov.
Attorneys who were registered to e-file with the JPML prior to May 3, 2021, may link their upgraded PACER account to their JPML CM/ECF account if they have a JPML login and password available. If the attorney does not have a JPML login and password, or if the attorney has never registered to e-file in the JPML, they must register for e-filing acess through their PACER account.
For step-by-step assistance with the PACER account upgrade process or e-filing registration process, please view our tutorials below.
