Vol. 80, No. 10, October 2007
The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin will implement a new case management and electronic case files system, referred to as CM/ECF, in January. The system will provide enhanced case management tools and the capability to store court documents in electronic format and to accept electronic filings.
"The new system will offer several benefits," says chief deputy Joel Turner. "Attorneys will have instant access to case files 24 /7 and the ability to file documents outside of normal business hours and receive an email notice of the electronic filing. Plus, there will be no additional fees; current document filing fees will apply."
Attorneys must obtain a login and password to file documents electronically. For more information or to register, visit http://attorneyreg.wiwd.uscourts.gov, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact clerk Theresa Owens at (608) 261-5723.
