E-Filing Resources

The Court’s Case Management/Electronic Case Filing system, CM/ECF, permits attorneys appearing in all pending civil and criminal cases to file documents with the Court via the Internet using the ECF (Electronic Case Filing) portion of the system.

In addition to the court's Local Rules, the   ECF Policies and Procedures Manual governs electronic filing in all civil and criminal cases within the Southern District of Indiana. Attorneys, parties, and pro se litigants may view civil and criminal dockets as well as electronically filed documents via the Internet using the PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) portion of the system.
