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 will be required on civil cases beginning June 20, 2005. Electronic Case Filing will begin on criminal cases on 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, 24hours 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, 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 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. An ECF user must register as a PACER user to file documents electronically.
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.
