CM/ECF Version 6.1 Information

Upgrade Date

The District of Oregon's CM/ECF system will be unavailable for electronic filing and PACER queries beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, March 21, 2014, through noon on Monday, March 24, 2014.

Internet Browser Compatability

CM/ECF Version 6.1 has been tested with Internet Explorer (IE) 9.x, Firefox 15.x, and Safari 5.1/6.1 (new). 

Notices of Electronic Filing (NEFs)

If an attorney has more than one e-mail address, but not all of the addresses are configured to receive NEFs in a specific case, only the configured addresses will appear in the body of the notice.

Miscellaneous Docketing Changes

The following changes are included in CM/ECF Version 6.1:

Attorneys in civil cases need to have a designation type of either CJA Appointment, Public Defender or Community Defender Appointment, Pro Bono, Waived or Self (Pro Se), or Retained. This is similar to the current designation requirement for attorneys in criminal cases.

The Version 6.1 default designation is Retained.

Attorneys will no longer be able to add themselves as counsel for an opposing party. For example, an attorney for the plaintiff cannot add himself as an attorney for the defendant. The PickFiler screen will be modified so only the parties on the attorney's "side" will be displayed during filing.

If an attorney has an inactive e-mail address, the label "(Inactive)" will appear beside the e-mail address on the front of the docket sheet. This would happen if the attorney or an authorized court user changed the attorney’s e-mail profile in response to the question, "Should this e-mail address receive notices?" from "yes" to "no."
