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.
CM/ECF implementation in the bankruptcy courts has been underway since early 2001. District court implementation began in 2002. Appellate court implementation began in late 2004.
