Court To Implement CM/ECF Filing Agent on Monday, July 16, 2012

News Category: 
Public Notice

The Court will implement the new CM/ECF Filing Agent on Monday, July 16, 2012. Filing Agent is an optional feature that enables registered CM/ECF users to assign unique logins and passwords to support staff filing electronic documents on their behalf.

The benefits of using the Filing Agent are:

  • Registered CM/ECF users will no longer need to share their personal CM/ECF password and login with employees;
  • Employees provided with their own logins and passwords will be able to work in CM/ECF simultaneously; and
  • Registered users will be able to access reports to view filing activity for each of their registered employees using reports available in CM/ECF.

An Electronic Learning Module [ELM] for the CM/ECF Filing Agent is available on the Court’s website for training by clicking here. This ELM is also available on the CM/ECF webpage under Registration/Training. We encourage registered CM/ECF users with support staff to review the CM/ECF Filing Agent ELM before implementing the Filing Agent feature.

Registered CM/ECF users will be responsible for CM/ECF Filing Agent use by their staff. Although staff will be able to file documents using their own password and login, the primary registered CM/ECF user’s name will continue to appear on the docket and reports as the filing party.

If you have any questions, please contact the ECF Help Desk at (213) 894-2365.
