The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin will add CM/ECF Release 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2 to the live database and the new product will be ready for use on Monday, December 5, 2011.  The CM/ECF system will not be available between 6:00 AM CST on Saturday December 3rd and 6:00 AM CST on Monday December 5th, 2011.  For a detailed list of changes in CM/ECF Release 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2, please see the Release Notes contained on the PACER Service Center’s website at http://www.pacer.gov/cmecf/relnotes.html.  Click here to see some of the expected changes.

The Judicial Conference of the United States has authorized an increase, effective April 1, 2012, in the Judiciary's electronic public access fee in response to increasing costs for maintaining and enhancing the electronic public access system. The increase in the electronic public access (EPA) fee, from $.08 to $.10 per page, is needed to continue to support and improve the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) system, and to develop and implement the next generation of the Judiciary's Case Management/Electronic Case Filing system.

The Conference was mindful of the impact such an increase could have on other public entities and on public users accessing the system to obtain information on a particular case. For this reason, local, state, and federal government agencies will be exempted from the increase for three years. Moreover, PACER users who do not accrue charges of more than $15 in a quarterly billing cycle would not be charged a fee. (The current exemption is $10 per quarter.) The expanded exemption means that 75 to 80 percent of all users will still pay no fees.

Attorneys now have the ability to terminate themselves from involvement in a case.  Step-by-step instructions are available HERE.

Did you know that CM/ECF settings allow for a daily summary of all NEF's Instead of one per filing?  Instructions on how to do this are HERE.

The Eastern District Bar Liaison Committee provides a way for lawyers who practice in this district to relay issues, concerns or ideas to the judges or the court staff in an anonymous fashion.  A member of the bar wishing to convey such an issue, concern or idea should feel free to contact one or more members of the Committee.  The Committee member or members then will relay the issue or concern to one or more of the judges, or to a member of the court's staff, without revealing the identity of the bar member who raised the issue or concern.

The Committee also provides feedback to the court about the services it provides to the bar and to other court customers.  The court seeks input from Committee members regarding ways in which the court can better serve the citizens of the Eastern District.

If you practice before the Eastern District of Wisconsin Bankruptcy Court, and wish to make a suggestion, express a concern or provide a constructive critique, please feel free to contact one or more of the committee members listed below.  Thank you for helping the court in its efforts to improve its services to you, and to the citizens of the Eastern District.

The Court has adopted a policy concerning e-mails that are returned as "undeliverable."  The CM/ECF Administrative Procedures have been updated as of September 6, 2011 to reflect this change.  The most up-to-date version of the Administrative Procedures can be found at http://www.wieb.uscourts.gov/index.php/orders-rules.
