CM/ECF Case Info

CM/ECF News

There are no notices at this time.

 

General

Please note that you may e-file at any time, but CM/ECF support (ECF Support Desk) is only offered Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. CST, excluding court holidays. No after hours support is available. When relevant, please include the Case Number and the Judge's initials in the Subject: line of all emails to the court.

All admitted attorneys are required to register to file electronically and are required to update their email addresses, mailing address, and phone number online by logging into CM/ECF. In order to receive your Notices of Electronic Filing on your cases, you must ensure that your email addresses are up-to-date at all times. If you are unable to log into CM/ECF to update your record, please complete the Email Notification Update Form and return it to the CM/ECF Help Desk.

Attorneys and other recipients the attorney has designated to receive e-mail notices are sent e-mail using the bcc (blind carbon copy) address field. The e-mail will be addressed to "cmecf_notices@txwd.uscourts.gov” and the e-mail will be from "txw_usdc_notice@txwd.uscourts.gov”. Attorneys must ensure these addresses are not blocked or marked as spam. Attorneys are also responsible for ensuring their e-mail box does not become full and cause e-mail notices to be rejected.

Please note that some of the files available are VERY large and may take several minutes to download to your computer, depending upon your internet connection.
