US District Court Countdown to NextGen

Do you practice in the US District Court for the District of Oregon? Are you ready for NextGen – the new version of Case Management/Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF)? If not, act now because time is running out. Here are the pertinent timelines and to-dos.

Effective date for NextGen

Tuesday, January 21, 2020.

When CM/ECF will be Offline

From 3:00 p.m. on Friday, January 17, 2020 through 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 21, 2020. During this time, notices of electronic filing will not be issued.

Court-Imposed Deadlines 

Court-imposed deadlines falling on Friday, January 17, 2020 are extended to 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, January 21, 2020. Standing Order 2019-13.

Time-Sensitive Filings Must be Submitted by Email

The Clerk’s Office will accept via email time-sensitive filings, such as filings nearing statute of limitations deadlines, requests for emergency injunctive relief, and notices of appeal.

Counsel or self-represented parties who are concerned about whether a filing must be submitted to the Clerk to ensure its timeliness should also submit the filing by email during the period when CM/ECF is unavailable.

Documents must be submitted to filings@ord.uscourts.gov and will be deemed filed as of the date received. Any documents submitted via email during this time will be entered on the docket by the Clerk’s Office as soon as practical after CM/ECF is operational. Standing Order 2019-13.

Attorneys will NOT be able to log in and file with their current CM/ECF user names and passwords after January 21, 2020. To avoid any interruption in filing:
