NextGen CM/ECF Information

About NextGen

The Federal Judiciary developed a Next Generation (NextGen) Case Management/Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF) system that allows attorneys to use the same account for both PACER and electronic filing access. Attorneys will be required to use their individual PACER login and password for access to the electronic filing system in NextGen Courts.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio will upgrade to NextGen at some point in the future.
