The United States District Court,District of Colorado welcomes you to the Electronic Document System. The Electronic Document System has two components, an electronic document filing component known as Electronic Case Files (ECF) and an electronic document viewing component, known as Public Access to Electronic Case Records (PACER). Both components may be accessed from the same login screen. Electronic Case Filing has been mandatory for civil cases since June 20, 2005 and for criminal cases since December 5, 2005.
The ECF system allows registered users to file and receive electronic notice of filed documents electronically over the Internet from anywhere in the world. With the exception of some daily maintenance, CM/ECF is available virtually 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The PACER system allows registered users to access electronic versions of filed court documents in real time over the Internet anywhere in the world, virtually 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Participating in the Electronic Document System is a two-step process. To view electronic documents, a user must register and receive a login from the PACER Service Center. To file documents electronically using ECF, a registered PACER user must also register with the court as an ECF user. A PACER user does not have to register as an ECF user to take advantage of viewing documents electronically, but will not be able to e-file with a PACER login.
Please note that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and U.S. District Court require separate CM/ECF logins. A CM/ECF login and password for the U.S. District Court will not work with the Bankruptcy Court.
