September 19, 2014 - Implementation of NextGen CM/ECF - On October 20, 2014, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will go live on Next Gen CM/ECF, the latest iteration of the national case management and electronic filing system. Under the existing version of CM/ECF, a filing user is required to run Java in order to access the system. A filing user also must maintain a separate CM/ECF account for each court in which that user files documents and performs other CM/ECF-related activity. A CM/ECF account is separate from the user’s PACER account which is utilized to view docket reports and print filed documents. Highlights of NextGen CM/ECF will include the following:

 

  • The Java plug-in will no longer be required;

  • The system will use a new interface for filing users; and

  • A new Central Sign-on feature will allow a filing user to view docket reports, file documents, and perform other CM/ECF-related activity through one PACER account that will be utilized for all appellate, district, and bankruptcy courts that have gone live on NextGen CM/ECF.

To continue filing documents and performing other CM/ECF-related activity in the Second Circuit on or after October 20, 2014, a filing user who created a PACER account prior to August 11, 2014, will be required to upgrade that account in PACER. View instructions for upgrading a PACER account. Each individual filing user must have a separate upgraded account; firmwide and other shared accounts will not be permitted. Any individual filing user who created a PACER account on or after August 11, 2014, already has an upgraded PACER account which will be compatible with NextGen CM/ECF. A filing user with questions about whether his or her PACER account has been upgraded should contact PACER directly.


Prior to October 20, 2014, a filing user will continue using his or her current Second Circuit CM/ECF account to file documents and perform other CM/ECF-related activity even if the filing user has an upgraded PACER account.

 

Beginning October 20, 2014, a filing user will only be able to file documents and perform other CM/ECF-related activity in the Second Circuit through the user’s upgraded PACER account. Upon logging in to PACER for the first time on or after this date, a Second Circuit filing user with an upgraded PACER account will be prompted to link the user’s upgraded PACER account with his or her Second Circuit CM/ECF account. As additional appellate, district, and bankruptcy courts go live, PACER will offer the ability to add those courts to a filing user’s upgraded PACER account so that the filing user does not have to maintain a separate CM/ECF account for those courts. Until a court goes live on Next Gen CM/ECF, however, a filing user will only be able to perform CM/ECF-related activities in that court by using his or her separate CM/ECF account issued by that court.

 

On or before October 20, 2014, the Court will post updated instructions for filing documents electronically in CM/ECF with screen shots reflecting the new interface.

March 10, 2014 - Procedure for Dismissing an Appeal or Sanctioning Counsel When the Court Sets a Brief Filing Date and a Brief is Not Timely Filed - Effective April 1, 2014

 

  • In counseled agency and civil appeals, when the Court orders a petitioner or appellant’s briefing deadline pursuant to a scheduling notification submitted under Local Rule 31.2(a)(1)(A), the order will specify that the appeal is dismissed effective the due date if the brief is not filed by that date. A motion to extend the time to file the brief or to seek other relief will not toll the previously ordered filing date. See LR 27.1(f)(1); Cf. RLI Insurance Co. v. JDJ Marine, Inc., 716 F.3d 41, 43-45 (2d Cir. 2013).

  • In counseled agency and civil appeals, when the Court orders a respondent or an appellee’s briefing deadline pursuant to a scheduling notification submitted under Local Rule 31.2(a)(1)(B), the order will specify that the appeal will proceed to a merits panel for determination forthwith if the brief is not filed by the due date. Appellee will be required to file a motion for permission to file a brief and appear at oral argument. A motion to extend the time to file the brief or to seek other relief will not toll the previously ordered filing date. See LR 27.1(f)(1); Cf. RLI Insurance Co., 716 F.3d, at 43-45.

  • In counseled criminal appeals, when the Court orders a briefing deadline pursuant to a scheduling notification, the order will specify that if the brief is not timely filed, counsel may be subject to an order to show cause why a financial sanction should not be imposed under Local Rule 27.1(h) for the default.
