Action Required: NextGen Coming to the District of Oregon January 21, 2020

The U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon will complete its upgrade to the latest version of Case Management/Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF), known as "NextGen" on January 21, 2020.

Attorneys will NOT be able to log in and file with their current CM/ECF user names and passwords after January 21, 2020. To avoid any interruption in filing capabilities, the following is required:

  1. Attorneys will be required to have individual, upgraded PACER Accounts. Shared accounts may not be used.
  2. Attorneys will need to know their CM/ECF user name and password.

Are you ready for NextGen? Please refer to the following table:


Do you have an individual PACER account?
