ELECTRONIC CASE FILING PROCEDURES.
To Attorneys in ALL cases pending before Judge Boyle:
Judge Boyle is requiring that ALL cases pending and/or filed in her court, including those involving pro se and prisoner litigants, be enrolled in the Electronic Filing System (CM/ECF). Only licensed attorneys may file electronically, thus even though cases involving pro se parties (including prisoners) will be enrolled in the CM/ECF System, non-attorneys will not be permitted to register or file electronically. Attorneys in all affected cases will receive an order describing the procedures for attorneys to follow in making the transition to the CM/ECF System.
CM/ECF is the federal courts' case management and electronic case files system. It provides courts enhanced and updated docket management. It allows courts to maintain case documents in electronic form. And it gives each court the option of permitting case documents — pleadings, motions, petitions — to be filed with the court over the Internet. (U. S. Courts website at http://www.uscourts.gov/cmecf/cmecf.html).
Attorneys practicing in courts offering this electronic filing capability are able to file documents directly with the court over the Internet at any time from any location. For more information on the benefits to attorneys using the CM/ECF system, go to the U.S. Courts’ internet website at http://www.uscourts.gov/cmecf/cmecf.html and click on “Video: The Attorneys’ Perspective.” Information regarding the operation of the CM/ECF system in the Northern District of Texas is available on the website for the U.S. Courts for the Northern District of Texas at: http://www.txnd.uscourts.gov/filing/ecf.html
